Installing Visual Studio 2005 on Windows 7 (64 bit)

    Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to install VS 2005 on Window 7 (64 bit). I understand there are compatibility issues and ways around this with the download of service packs. However I can't even get VS 2005 to install so I can apply the service packs. I'm getting the following error:

    ERROR:Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'policy.8.0.Microsoft.VC80.OpenMP,type="win32-policy",version="8.0.50727.42",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",processorArchitecture="x86"'. Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x80073712.

    Can anyone help please?

    Many thanks.

  • Hello Yichun Chen,

    I am looking for the same answer to this question, but the above addresses a problem with the install for this person.  He had not returned, as it seems.  I do want to know if my Visual Studio Professional 2005 will work on my new Windows 7 Pro 64 bit?  You do say it does, but it seems I may have to do some things prior to and after (I guess).  Do you know the whole story on the issue?  Are you suggesting for anyone else to run the tool when running the install of VS 2005 and send up logs?  I have downloaded the file just in case.

    Please instruct me, I would appreciate it.

    :-)

  • Hi BarJabba,

    Thank you for your post.

    To track the root cause of the installation problem, we need the log files to get more useful information on it.

    After we have collected log files, we can try the points mentioned here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/0376db8f-4761-4ae5-9af2-98c53216318a#How_to_diagnoseVS2008_NETFramework_logs to diagnose the cause of failure installation.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hello YiChun Chen,

    I'm having the same isue. I want to use vs2005 because I develop software for a windows CE device.

    I have reading this thread several time's, but i'm still stuck.

    When I want to start setup as a administrator I get a immediatly warning that the version of the file is not compitable with the windows version that I use (windows 7 prof x64)

    So I can't install the other update's.

    Is there a simple solution for this problem ?

  • I just installed VS2005 Pro Edition on Windows Server 2008 R2. Only SQL Server 2005 Express Edition x64 install fails with this warning:

    [06/11/12,15:38:48] Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition x64: [2] Component Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition x64 returned an unexpected value. ***EndOfSession***

    The overall setup is still considered a success so it seems I will be able to apply the required SP1 for compatibility with Windows Server 2008 R2 (which is the same base as Windows 7).
