SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition Installation

As a developer, we always have a chance to install SQL Server Developer Edition for testing, and we might meet the same issues in each installation, I will screenshot the installation process here, with a brief discussion. This article could be base for other SQL Server installation debug articles.

This installation is based on the current SQL Server 2019.  Download the SQL Server from Microsoft and start to run the installation:

We could choose either the basic or the customed, I prefer to do the second in that I can install all components in case I will use them in future development. Because I am a SQL developer, instead of an Administrator, I do not want to jump in too deep to figure out which component is which, just have them all.  If your computer memory can afford this choice, you can do it, otherwise, you can just install the basic.
