Further to my earlier post SQL Server Client Tools Setup Fails due to MSXML 6 , in which I mentioned a solution for SQL Server Client Tools setup failure, if you are still unable to install them then following steps may help you.

  1. Navigate to \Tools\Setup folder of your SQL Server Setup CD
  2. Launch SqlRun_Tools.msi

It will launch the installation wizard directly and in 90% percent of the cases you will be able to install the client tools successfuly.
