  • Hi saikumare,

    Thanks for your post.

    You should make sure you’ve followed these tips: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vssetup/thread/60f71a54-506e-4c70-be98-e993ce6d1ddf

    1) Disable your Anti Virus software

    2) Update your computer (Windows)       

    Then you should make sure you have healthy installation package(The step is important for your case):

    1. Suppose you are using a ISO, Please use this tool http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841290 to verify hash of the iso. The point of the exercise is to generate a hash value (or values) - MD5 and SHA1 - from the .iso file so that it/they can be checked against the known value(s) for that file. Any discrepancy would indicate that the file was corrupted.
    2. If you are using a web installer, please make sure your network is healthy.

    If the error persists when you are sure your package is healthy:

    Please use  http://aka.ms/vscollect  to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.cab from %temp% folder. Please upload the file to https://skydrive.live.com/   and share the link here.

    How to analyze the logs:

    For Visual Studio 2012:

    1. Extract your vslogs.cab to a folder
    2. Open that folder and navigate to vslogs/Temp
    3. Sort files by date modified and check the latest logs.

    Find this file out: dd_vs_ultimate_<Date><Number>

    Search for errors from this file.
