  • Hi,

    About the error "component failed", I think your installation file may have some problems.

    I suggest that you use ISO file to reinstall it.

    Before you install it, I suggest you 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 (SHA1) from the ISO file so that it can be checked against the known value for that file. Any discrepancy would indicate that the file was corrupted.

    If the installation still fails, please use http://aka.ms/vscollect to gather the latest 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.
