‘MEDIALAYOUT’ in SQL Server ConfigurationFile.Ini


While trying to install new instance of SQL Server using command line and the ConfigurationFile.ini unattended answer file, you may receive the following error message : MEDIALAYOUT in SQL Server ConfigurationFile.Ini

Don’t waste your time searching in different documentations about the allowed keywords for the configuration file.

This error means you forgot to put slashes in front of every argument you used on the command line after setup.exe, e.g.

Just add all the slashes back, and voilà!
