I need to install this application silently on windows 8.1 RTM.

When I install the "SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe" i get few compatibility warnings as shown in the attached image(Compatibility Assistant Warning.png).


I read in few blogs that if you apply SP2 patch these warnings should not appear. But when i try to install SP2 Patch it gives an error saying "No Shared instances available"

If i try to do a slipstream of the patch (SQLServer2008R2SP2-KB2630458-x64-ENU.exe) using the instructions given in the below link it throws below error "Slip Streaming Error.png"



Does anyone know how to install "SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe" silently on windows 8.1 RTM machine.

We have to install "New SQL Server stand-alone installation" inside that we have to install all the features and have to resolve the compatibility warnings as well.

If you don't care about the incompatibility, why not simply stop the PCA service and then restart it once the installation is complete?
