Install error object required: ...

I am trying to do a findbuild sql server2008r2 install on windows server 2008R2. 

I rightclick the cmdHere.exe and run as admin
then I type in cscript FineBuild2InstallSQL.vbs and get the error below.
I've changed the path and put everything in the Build Scripts folder but get same error.
Any help would be appreciated.

You need to run one of the files in the FineBuild folder, such as SQLFineWorkstation. 

The files in the Build Scripts folder are not designed to run independantly of each other, they must be run in the sequence controlled by the SQLFineBuild.bat file.  The SQLFineBuild.bat file itself needs specific parameters to tell it what to do, and these are supplied by files such as SQLFineWorkstation or SQLFineServer.

The QuickStart guide describes how to run a Workstation install.  When you want to install to a multi-disk server or to a Windows Cluster, please see the Reference Manual for more details of this type of install.
