I am trying to install the Offline client on a Windows 8 machine with Outlook 2010. The installation fails due to the failed installation of SQL Server 2008.
Here is part of the log file:

Is this a new PC or existing PC and had CRM prior?
I'd try to uninstall CRM and SQL completely and then reinstall.

Could be following:
There are remnants of previous instance of SQL Express edition
Third party security program was limiting a SQL install to be successful
missing privileges to users
