Trouble installing Visual Studio on Windows Server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I've tried installing Visual Studio 2008, then Visual Studio 2008 Express and then Visual Studio 2005 express. In each case, the installer stops while trying to install pre-reqs.

    The only softwares installed on the system are Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Server and Daemon Tools, and I'm logged in as Administrator with the anti-virus disabled. I looked at the VSSWMSIFailInfo.txt error file it generated, and it was mostly talking about resetting the counter for restart and the value at the end for that counter was -1.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,


    This may happen if you have loaded any updates or software and not taken a required reboot.


    Please check policy settings add on, hardware drivers etc.
