  • Please tell us what version of Windows you have. To install .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 7, for example, special procedures are required:

    If you have an earlier Windows version, please collect your install logs as follows:

    Collect the install logs with this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=it&id=12493

    After you run Collect.exe, you'll find vslogs.cab in your %temp% directory. Upload vslogs.cab to a public site, like SkyDrive, then post the link here.

  • Hi silk,

    Like pvdg42 said, to help locate the cause of the installation failure, and provide specific suggestions to troubleshooting this issue, we'll need to check the installation logs.

    If you have security concerns about uploading the file to public webside, you can also send the log file to me via email (E-mail: v-anwu_at_microsoft_dot_com). Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

    You can download a fresh installer from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=26

    Before install Visual Studio, please turn off your anti-virus/antispyware software; clean your %temp% folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp% >> Ok). Then run the setup with Administrator privilege:

    • Make sure your user account is in Administrators group;
    • Right-click the installer -> Properties -> Security tab -> add your account with Full control.

    Waiting to hear from you.

    Best Regards,

  • I have Windows XP Professional.  I'm not sure what you mean by upload to a public site.  Why would I need to do that?  Thanks.

  • You need to make the logs available to forum readers who might have suggestions that will solve your problem.

    By uploading the vslogs.cab file to a site where it is accessible by forum readers, all interested readers of this thread can look at the details in the logs, and offer you help.

    Without the information in the logs, readers cannot offer suggestions specific to your problem.

  • Thank you all for responding.  I ended up taking the computer to the shop where they basically reinstalled Windows XP.  The guy said "the windows downloads were trashed".  It's working just fine now.

     

    Thanks for all of your suggestions.
