Visual Studio 2008 Installation error RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS: Windows XP SP2

    Problems encountered during the Visual Studio 2008 installation.

    Error log:
    "Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office system (version 3.0 Runtime): [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office system (version 3.0 Runtime). MSI returned error code 1603"

  • Hi.  Did you ever figure out what caused this?  I just got the same error on Win 7.  I had a bad install of VS 2005 that I removed first, and I might've killed a version of .NET in the process.
    Love XNA, love WPF and Blend
