  • Hi Bluepig,

     

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

     

    There are several things I would like to clarify with you:

    ·         What is your OS version?

    ·         Are you having this error while install Visual Studio 2010?

     

    From the log file you provide, I find the sections  below:

    [01/25/11,12:34:20] VC 9.0 Runtime (x86): [2] Error: Installation failed for component VC 9.0 Runtime (x86). MSI returned error code 1603

     

    The error code 1603 is a generic catch-all error code that means "fatal error during installation". Please follow this blog to locate the cause of error code 1603: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2005/08/01/446328.aspx.

    When you find the detailed cause of the error, please post it back here, so that we can give you more advice on how to solve this problem.

     

    To solve your problem, please follow below steps:

    1.       Before install Visual Studio, please finish the steps below:

    -          Turn off your anti-virus/antispyware software during installation.

    -          Install the latest Windows updates from the Windows Update site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com.

    -          Complete or dismiss Windows Update before installation. (and don't forget to turn it on later)

    2.       Completely remove the failed Visual Studio 2010 components from your computer.

    Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program, find and uninstall all the items been installed together with VS.

    You can use this tool to ensure complete uninstall: Visual Studio 2010 Uninstall Utility.

    3.       Install Visual Studio Administrator privilege.

     

    If the installation still fails, follow below steps to collect install log files:

    ·         Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%).

    ·         Install Visual Studio again (with Administrator privilege).

    ·         Collect the logs from "%temp%" folder with the Log Collection Tool.

    Collect tool: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e0da314f-6216-4a18-bc6b-7d29cf83af20&displaylang=en

    ·         Send the vslogs.cab file to me (E-mail: v-anwu@microsoft.com).

    Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

     

    Waiting to hear from you.
