Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate hangs at install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install VS 2010 Ultimate and it hangs at the "Installing Visual Studio 2010" step, with no progress. I left it there for over half an hour and it was still hung.

    It seems to be the same problem as the one in this thread: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/setupprerelease/thread/850b42b6-0c26-4ee9-8ad9-2d77d01ac301

    I tried the suggested solutions in that thread, namely rebooting and disabling the windows search task. No change.

    My pertinent system specs:

    OS Name    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

    Version    6.1.7600 Build 7600

    System Type    x64-based PC

    Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU         860  @ 2.80GHz, 2801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

    Installed Physical Memory (RAM)    8.00 GB

    Adapter Description    ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series

     

    I already have VS 2008 Pro installed, along with the Express version of 2010.

    I downloaded the web installer from MSDN and ran that. It worked and fully installed VS2010.
