  • Hi Leon,

    I heard that there are some issues experienced during installation of VS2008 SP1 on windows7 machines. Can you please check the Log file and see the error message, if its failing during installation of updates, it will give update Knowledge base number which will be in this format (KBxxxx), install this update from windows update manually and then start the installation again.
