Install failure with Visual Studio Pro 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed VS 2010 Pro yet during install it stated failure to install components.  After install (or most of install), the program wouldn't run.  Tried to unstall but it left several VS elements behind.  Unstalled those and now VS states errors when trying to re-install.  Saw several errors relating to C++ but I can't figure out what they mean.  I NEED this program for school, but if I can't get it working, that means I FAIL my class.  HELP!!!

    PS--I am a hardware person, not software.  Any special instructions will have to be in K.I.S.S. format.

  • Well, everything works.  For now.  But having to do a clean install seem to be the only way to fix many of these problems.  Not a positive thing.

  • Use the VS 2010 uninstall utility to destroy any remaining files

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/heaths/archive/2010/08/23/visual-studio-2010-uninstall-utility.aspx

    Clean all the files in TEMP folder.

    restart system and reinstall VS 2010.

    if the error still occurs go to temp and find the file VSD*.txt and copy its content here.

  • make sure your .NET4.0 framework is completely uninstalled, here is a tutorial for that : http://www.blogsdna.com/4171/how-to-completely-uninstall-net-framework-on-windows-7.htm after you've done this, redownload the framework and install it again.

  • You can use this tool to completely remove .NET Framework 4.0:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx

    Make sure to remove ONLY .NET Framework 4.0 entries!

    Download the full, standalone, .NET Framework 4.0 installer here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=17718

    Before running the installer, clean out your %temp% directory and disable any AV/anti-malware/firewall software.

    Run the installer from the system administrator account.

  • Did all that.  Plus tried several other things from other threads with the same problem.  Best I can figure, all the issues started after an update from Microsoft.  I will try to uninstall updates to 3 weeks back to see if that helps.

  • The problem seems to be a .NET Framework issue.  I started a tread regarding it.

  • Check the installed updates, did you have KB958488 installed? If so, remove it then try again.

    You can also try install the update alone: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=7942

    Tuesday, August 23, 2011 7:09 AM
  • All updates were installed.  Unfortunately that is where the problems started.  I'm trying to find out what update caused the crash.  I may have to do a clean install.

  • Hi Mdkocher,

     

    Thank you for your post.

     

    First, could you please collect the entire log via Visual Studio and .NET Log Collection Utility? After you run it, please upload vslogs.cab to an open website like Windows Live SkyDrive or send it to me (v-alsun_at_microsoft_dot_com).

     

    Second, from your log, We can see the installation of KB958488 failed with 0x240006. For the error “0x240006”, it means the update to be installed is already installed on the system, so this error did not lead to installation failure.

     

    Third, I recommend you download .NET Framework 4 from Microsoft Official website, then try to install it.

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17718

     

    If you have any other concerns, please feel free to let me know.

     

    Best Regards,

  • Update IS installed.  As is all other updates.  AV turned off.  Permissions all set to Administrator.  Ran every tool.  Any other ideas to try?

  • Hi Mdkocher,

     

    Thank you for your uploading.

     

    From your log:

    [8/23/2011, 11:12:26] Returning IDOK. INSTALLMESSAGE_ERROR [There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. Please refer to the setup log for more information. ]

    [8/23/2011, 11:12:37]PerformOperation returned 1603 (translates to HRESULT = 0x80070643)

    08/23/11 11:12:26 DDSet_Error: Failed to install assembly C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ISymWrapper.dll. IAssemblyCache->InstallAssembly() returned -2147024891.

    08/23/11 11:12:26 DDSet_Error: Failed to install assembly 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ISymWrapper.dll' because of system error: Access is denied.

    For the error code “-2147024891”, it is the error 0x80070005 which means “Access is denied”.

     

    If an assembly file in the GAC (Global Access Cache) has been locked or is "in use" it can cause .NET Framework patches to fail. For more information, you can refer to this page: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=2263996

     

    Then, Secondly, please try using the SubInACL tool to repair file and registry permissionshttp://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx
    SubInACL tool is most useful when a setup package fails with error code 5 or 0x5 or 0x80070005. All of these error codes mean Access Denied, and this type of error code is often caused by missing ACLs for the Administrators group or the built-in System account.

     

    Thirdly, please try the workaround mentioned in this similar thread:
    Windows Update Error 0x80070005
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vistawu/thread/a9a2c92d-793b-4050-bdb1-720bb97bd78d

     

    I hope this helps.

  • I already tried the SubInACL tool before.  3 times.  Plus the Update error "fix".  All failed.

  • Hi, have you tried to install it via another admini account? Although it seems like unbelievable, I think it is worhty of being tried.

     

    Have a nice day!

  • After all the headaches, I went ahead and did a clean install.  Reloaded my drivers, and FINALLY installed VS2010 Pro, Expression Studio Ultimate, and SQL Server 2008 r2!  Amazing!  Re-installed all my other programs and games.  Now the problems are the security updates for .NET Framework.  Had to kill (end process) Windows Update because it was stuck for an hour on one update.  Restarted the update manager and unchecked everything regarding .NET updates.  Bet that is where all the problems are located.
