I'm trying to start the setup but immediatly run into some kind of access issues. The full error message is:

SqlSetupVar.vbs(714, 3) msxml3.dll: Access is denied.
SqlSetupVar.vbs(674, 3) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Object required: 'objBuildFile.documentElement'

I'm trying to install SQL Server 2014 Ent edt on Windows 2012R2 on 64bit.

Any idea what can cause this problem?

Are you using 'Run as Administrator' when you start FineBuild? You need to run FineBuild using an account that has local Administrator rights on the computer you are using, and you need to right-click on the FineBuild file you want to run and select Run as Administrator.

Please let me know if your problem is different to this.

I'm logged in using a local administrator account and I start the command prompt using Run as Administrator. I still get this error.. I cant find anything in any logs since the acctual setup doesnt even start.
