          3.   Check if there is any anti-virus or antispyware running. Turn them off before installation.

     

          4.   Make sure that the installation media is healthy. If the installation from DVD is not working well, you can try copying the contents of the disc to the hard disk and try the installation from the hard disk.

     

     

    Those are the important things that make me sucessfully install VS2008 pro.

    When I install it from DVD, the installation was failed because there is something currupt from the CAB file (but I'm not sure why???). Then I copy the installation disc and it works.

     

    Another suggestion is that better to extract the .iso file in the directory and install it from there rather than burn it to DVD.

    You can use PowerISO or other software to extract the .iso file.

     

    Have a nice try.

  • I've been trying to get VS 2008 to work with Windows Server 2008 64 bit RC2, and the installation "succeeds" - no errors; no errors in the logs, but VS is unusable.

    Attempts to compile a VC++ project give an error that "the visual C++ project engine is not properly installed" and then VS crashes.

    A C# project builds, but says that the debugger is not installed. Attempting to register the debugger DLL gets an "access denied" - and I AM in the administrator group.

    Also, MSDN does not install, complaining that the 'html help files are corrupt", but the logs indicate it may be something else.

     

    So can I get this to work or do I need to build on other systems (and can I do that and reference the server 2008 Microsoft.WindowsMediaServices.dll in a C# project_?

    I've got imiliar problem, WIN2003 Standard, installation successful all right, without firewall/anti-malware. Log seems all right, no "error" or "failed" was found in it.

    Running VS2008 the first time it ends up disappeared suddenly, after the main window showed up. And NO project can be debugged, it says debugger is not installed. All repair methods failed including re-register DLLs, repair installation, uninstall completely and re-install. Nothing works.

    I wonder if it is because I've VS2005 installed on the same system.

    Anybody have the similiar experience and solved?

    I have one hint. I did the beta uninstall on my laptop, vista home premium, but kept crapping out on the new install (as administrator) at the prereq step because of a bad vcredistmin_x86.exe supposedly. I tried a whole bunch of stuff ( but forgot to turn off antivirus so maybe that would have helped). What did work was right-clicking on setup.exe and running as administrator. Even though I was administrator, that worked. I don't use Vista too much yet so I keep forgetting to run as admin. Well, there's my success story, hope it helps someone.

  • Thanks for the post. I have been trying to install VS2008 for 2 days without success. I tried everything in your post but still no luck. My install fails right after the web components install, just as the main VS install starts. I get an error that setup.exe has stopped working. I have removed my anti-virus software. I have tried the install both before and after installing Vista SP1. I never had a pre-release or beta version. The version I am installing now is a promo version of Standard I got from MS earlier this week.

     

    Any ideas would be very welcome. I really liked the demos I saw of the new software - now I just want to start using it!

     

    Thanks

  • I am having exactly the same problem.  I have installed Vista Ultimate and I have been trying to install VS2008 for a couple of days with no avail. The VS2008 install starts and seems to finish installing the first component in the list ( "Web Authoring Tool") but aborts almost immediately once it starts the next step which is installing the VS2008 itself.  I have ran the tool to collect the logs and have uploaded the zip file at: http://cid-56de695761c966bb.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/Public

     

    Any help will be appreciated!!!

  • I have tried all of the steps you has suggested and still cannot get VS2008 to install. I have been able to install it using the same DVD in my home and office laptop computers but not successful on my office desktop computer. All three running Windows Vista Ultimate. Any other suggestions.

  • The VS 2008 Standard edition may give you some problems when installing.

     

     The install program will not start at all.  The CD drive will spin up, but
     nothing happens. 

     

    If you double-click the setup.exe file in Windows Explorer, then

    the install program will give you an error like "setup.exe is not a Win32 program"

    The ReadMe.htm on the disc may not have a solution either.

     

    Do nothing else until you try the following.

     

     Try the following suggestions: 

     1. Install VS 2008 Standard edition on system with WinXP Pro SP2 or newer.
     2. Be sure there are no Betas for any of the programming programs
      on your system.
     3. REMOVE ALL OF THE NERO BRAND SOFTWARE ON YOUR SYSTEM

      WITH "ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS" ON THE CONTROL PANEL.
     
    The VS 2008 Standard Edition software should install, now. 

     

    Notes:

    THIS VS 2008 STANDARD EDITION DISC IS A DVD-ROM TYPE OF DISC.

    Solution Was:

    It finally started up in Autorun after removal of the Nero software for the

    Lite-On unit on the system.  Must be that Nero software could not read the DVD-ROM disc.


     Just the MS software installed by WinXP for the Lite-On unit was in the Hardware
     driver section for the CD Drive unit when installation disc started up in autorun.

     

    Tips:

     The install program will ask to connect to the internet soon after it starts, so
     be able to connect before you begin, but do not connect until it prompts
     you for a connection.


     You can reinstall your Nero software after the VS 2008 software is finished with
     the installation.

  • Well, the problem is finally fixed. I did a reinstall (clean install of Windows Vista). After all updates were installed and before doing anything else, installed VS2008. This worked. The next step will be reinstall everything else.

     

    This tells me the problem wasn't Vista or the computer but something I, likely did or installed. No clue what that might have been. So, if all else fails, start over and do a clean install.

  • which is the best order for installing VS studio 2008:  uninstall vs studio 2005 first then install 2008 or install 2008 then uninstall 2005?  Also will either way affect MS Sql Server 2005 Reporting Services?  I have SSIS packages and reports that are running daily and I cannot have them go down. 

     

    Thank you for all your help.

  • Lt,

     

    The rule of thumb is "always remove the old before installing an upgrade." Typically, this is to prevent deleting files that are common to both versions; thus, may or could be deleted with the old version causing the new version to not run properly or to not run at all. However, I do not know how deleting VS 2005 will affect MS SQL 2005 Reporting Services. Someone else will need to address that issue.

  • It looks like we would have to pay for PowerISO... is there freeware for unmounting the Visual Studio 2008 ISO that you would recommend or found success in using? 

    Also, how do we do a complete check that anti-virus routines are not running on our PC or via our Explorer Browser?

  • This log came up when trying to install Visual C++ 2008 express and it says "Setup.exe stopped working" and MS .NET Framework v3.5 SP1 failed to install. I uninstalled .NET Framework, I shutdown the progams listed to close on your post, and used the collect and cleanup programs. Im running Windows Vista on a Toshiba Laptop... One of the main logs that seemed to show the problem is listed on my website at http://www.programming-wizard.synthasite.com/my-log-for-msdn.php (Its too big for a post so its on a page on it).

  • You can fix this problem also uninstalling this component of Microsoft Office Infopath: msiexec /x {30120000-0044-0C0A-0000-0000000FF1CE} <-- is a beta version of the component. Don't ask me why, I had the problem and I solve it without reinstalling all the computer.

  • Hi,
    I made a new post about my problem here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/21e1b2b2-21d1-40f1-9aa7-bcb3f0ba6b8d

    But maybe someone in this thread can help me?


    I just installed Visual Studio 2008 SP1, but when I run it and try to load an ASP.net project, I got those errors coming in popups:
    • Package Load Failure: Visual Web Developer HTML Source Editor Package
    • Package Load Failure: Visual Studio HTM Editor Package
    • Package Load Failure: Visual Studio CSS Editing Package
    Note: I already had .net framework 3.5 installed with Visual Studio 2005 (this version still works fine). The error didn't appear with the SP1, it was already showing those messages before I installed SP1 for VS2008.

    So, I looked around on forums and docs, and I tried many things:
    • Remove and re-installation (not repair) of .net framework 3.5
    • Remove and re-installation (not repair) of Visual Studio 2008 + SP1
    • I created the ActivityLog.xml file with the devenv.exe /log
      I can see this: "SetSite failed for package [Visual Web Developer HTML Source Editor Package]"
      "80004004 - E_ABORT"
      "The system cannot locate the object specified."
    • I tried to register manually the dlls in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Packages
      and it fails when trying the regsrv32 on htmdlgs.dll with the following message: "DllRegisterServer entry point was not found"
    Nothing could make it, I still have those errors appearing, and I can't work with VS2008 like that...

  • There are too many replies and too many solutions for too many problems.

    I am wondering which one is mine?

    Since that, WHY VS.NET 2008 checks these problems before installation?

    As I know, VS.NET 2008 is not so easy to install.

    I hope MICROSOFT  improve VS.NET 2008 and make it easier to install.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,
         We have created a windows installer in VS.NET 2005 which has a checkbox.We encypt and store the checkbox value(either checked or not) in a file under instalation directory.It works fine then we upgraded the version of the product and added a newly checkox and created a seperate file to store the vlue of this checkbox.When we try to upgrade the installer it works fine by removing the earlier version and installing the new version but it does not copy the newly created file.We have done the debugging on the Custome Installer class and found that the setup oroject does not executes the latest added custome codes.We have found the article which addresses the issue we are facing but we could not find whether this issue is resolved or not.The URL of the article is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555184 .
    Please provide some work around or solution to resolve the known issue.

    THanks,

  • When I Installed VS 2008 professional edition on my win7 RC I am in a big trouble. Earlier when I use to install the trial version on XP or Vista than when I start to modify/Repair setup for VS2008 than I had a update option where I can fill in my VS2008 Pro edition Key which I bought online. This simply updates my VS2008 trial to VS2008 Pro Edition Full. Now When I try Modify/Repair setup I don't have such option. It don't show up update window and I can't fill in the key. I can't afford to download the full version due to my bandwidth issues. And even I tried installing VS2008 SP1 but still the same issue persists. Please Help me to get out of this trouble. This would definitely help a lot...
