Hello,

 

SQL Server setup program creates a Summary.txt log file that could tell us what may be the cause of the error if the third party program was trying to install SQL Server when the error appeared. The following article may help you locate that file on the computer (select the appropriate version of SQL Server on the top of the article):

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143702(v=sql.120).aspx

Share with us the content of the Summary.txt log file. If the Summary.txt file has not been created, the third party program may have failed before trying to install SQL Server.

 

Before installing SQL Server you should enable .NET Framework 3.5 using Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn on/off features.

Hope this helps.
