  • Are you installing from a burned DVD or mounting the ISO on a virtual optical drive?

    The error message you got, "Cannot install; setup files failed verification" often indicates corrupt installation media.

    I suggest you extract the ISO content onto your hard drive, then run the setup.exe from there. If you get the same error, you should contact Dreamsparc about how to verify their downloads and permission to download a new image.

  • I am installing from a burned CD, I will try and download again and see if there was just a hiccup the first time.

     

    Thanks

  • Hi , cavale'er,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

     

    As you have described. I think maybe you should check these points:

     

    First please make sure your disk image was downloaded from here http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=16057  .

     

    After downloading the files, you can use FCIV utility to verify the CRC code of the ISO file. Before install Visual Studio, please turn off your anti-virus/antispyware software; clean your %temp% folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp% >> OK). Then run the setup with Administrator privilege.

     

    You must have administrator credentials to install Visual Studio. And There is “setup files failed verification” in your log file. So please run your

    Setup with Administrator privilege.

     

    Hope this helps! If the installation still failed, collect the installation log files from "%temp%" folder with the Log Collection Tool. Then please upload the vslogs.cab file to some public online storage site where we can accessed(SkyDrive for example), and paste the URL link here, so that we can help to check your installation logs.

     

    Best regards,

  • If I download from the suggested site all i get is the trail version. Through Dreamspark I get a full version for no cost as a student. How can I get the download from dreamspark?

    As I am new to win7 I don't see a"run" prompt in the start menu as I did in XP. So how do I get the run prompt in win7? Also I am logged in as the system administrator.

  • Hello Cavale'er,

    I am sorry that I do not have a verified student account, so I can't try it myself. And I think you can try the following link to see if you can download the VS2010 Professional from DreamSpark:

    https://www.dreamspark.com/products/Product.aspx?productid=25&lc=1033

    In addition, to get the Run prompt, you can refer to the following image on your Windows7 machine:

    RunCommand

  • I may be misinterpreting what I see in your vslogs, but what I find is logs where VS 2010 SP1 is being attempted to install?

    The logs in question were created on 11/18/2011 and are all named:

    "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1..."

    In the log specifically for Visual Studio 2010 Professional, I see the same error you cited:

    Error 2746:  Transform RTM.1 invalid for package C:\Windows\Installer\f47e2c.msi. Expected product {ED784556-66AA-3F17-9B58-7246ACB5C7E4}, found product {D6B15AE6-B052-363E-B6BB-C4714CBA6509}.
    MSI (s) (34:64) [12:19:34:449]: Skipping validation for patch transform #RTM.1.  Will not apply because previous transform was invalid
    MSI (s) (34:64) [12:19:34:449]: Looking for patch transform: RTM.2

    I checked the available VS 2010 downloads in my MSDN subscription and I did not find any for VS 2010 with SP1 included, so I have to wonder if the Dreamsparc site is linking you to the wrong ISO.

    I think you should contact Dreamsparc technical support and tell them what you are experiencing.
