  • Which version of Sitecore and Sitecore Commerce are you trying to install? Which OS do you use and also what is MS SQL Server version? Commented Jun 19, 2018 at 13:23
  • Windows 10, SIF.Sitecore.Commerce.1.0.1748(Ecommerce 9), SQL Server 2017 , one thing that is weird, Is that im Using PowerShell 64 bits, but when I Install, the SQLServer package goes to (C:\Program Files (x86)\WindowsPowerShell\Modules , Perhaps it should go to C:\Program Files \WindowsPowerShell\Modules

    Yes but officially it is not supported as @Vlad mentioned therefore if you have any problems in the future Sitecore Support won't help you and also you will have problem on Slack channel or here in StackExchange to find somebody with this "exotic" configuration... You should always follow official guidelines from Sitecore. Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 7:04

I found the Answer ,download the file below only if you have "SQL SERVER 2017"


Overwrite this file on the installation SIF.Sitecore.Commerce.1.0.1748\Modules\DeployCommerceDatabase\DeployCommerceDatabase.psm1 Run the script to Install again and the issue will not show up
