Sql-server – How to fix a Cross language installation problem in SQL Server 2008

sql serversql-server-2008

I'm trying to do a SQL Server 2008 setup and I've been given a Cross Language Installation failure. More specifically:

Rule "cross language installation: failed.
the Setup language is different than the language of existing SQL Server features. To continue, use SQL Server Setup installation media of the same language as the installed SQL Server features.

I do not have SQL Server Express installed and I browsed through "Add or Remove Programs" and was unable to find anything that looked like it was a previous version of SQL.

Any tips?

I restarted the setup after facing the same problem, and I realized that man should not close the installation center till the setup process is completed. If you leave it open it will work.
