I need to install SQL Server Express with a Silent Installation, using a configuration file. I created a configuration file, but when I execute the setup.exe and pass the file as parameter, I get the following error:

" TITLE: SQL Server Setup failure.
SQL Server Setup has encountered the following error: The specified value for setting 'MEDIALAYOUT' is invalid. The expected values are: None Core Advanced Full Error code 0x84B40001.*

My command for to start the installation is : "setup.exe /configurationfile = C:\Users\desenv01\Desktop\SQL Server 2014\Configuration\ConfigurationFile.ini.

Could anyone help me?

You have specified an invalid value in your configuration file. Since we can't see the file, that's all we can tell you.

The tag MEDIALAYOUT does not exist in the file.

Try putting quotes around the configuration file path, and removing the spaces around the "=" character:

setup.exe /configurationfile="C:\Users\desenv01\Desktop\SQL Server 2014\Configuration\ConfigurationFile.ini"
