Error 2753 not marked for installation error


  • Hi,  I have VS2010 Premium running on Windows 7 64.  I am trying to install Crystal Reports, which I have downloaded from SAP and I have both CRforVS_13_0 and CRforVS_13_0_1.  Both give the same error: "Error 2753. The File "agent.exe.6ED28686_7B19_42oC_B255_5B6C1BD2C705"is not marked for installation."  Does anyone know how to get around or fix this?


    Thanks for looking.

  • Hi BM,

    I've had this happen to me also, something is holding that file and locking it. Reboot and then reinstall and it should work.

    Also, use SP1 - CRforVS_13_0_1 -  Service Packs do an uninstall and install the update so putting 13_0 on first won't help at all.

    Thank you

  • Hi Don,

      I'll give that a try.  But I do have one question.  when you say "use SP1 - CRforVS_13_0_1", is there a file specifically called "SP1 - CRforVS_13_0_1" or did you just mean "CRforVS_13_0_1"?


    Thanks a bunch for the help

  • The last number will be the Service Pack "_1" in the file name.

  • Ok, so I rebooted my machine and I still get the same error.  I really do need to get CR installed and running.  What can I do now?
