Installer crashes when SQL Server service is not started

description

If the SQL Server service is not started, an exception is thrown during the installation and it terminates.
(NullReferenceException)
 
If the service is started and the installer is run again, it works properly and sample databases are created.

Similar to another issue on here. Note that if you have 2 or more instances, all need to be running, not just the instance to which you wish to install the sample DBs. Bit of a gotcha :)
