  • The installataion is expected to hang for a few minutes when installing tools for Visual Studio. If it is haning on CHS Language Pack like you say, that is a bit odd.

    Could you go to %temp% and send me the log for the MSI that it is haning on (if it exists)? And also the bootstrapper log. The file names would be WCF_Data_Services_5.0_(OData_v3)_##############.txt and WCF_Data_Services_5.0_(OData_v3)_##############_#_wcf_dataservices_lp_zh_cn.txt? My email is iawillia@microsoft.com.

  • Looking at the logs you sent me, I can only see what I think you already figured out - it's haning while running ngen to generate a native image of one of the resource DLLs.  I haven't seen or heard of this behavior before.

    What OS and Windows Installer version are you running? Also I would try uninstalling from Programs and Features, redownloading our installer, and running it again if you haven't already. If that still fails, I wonder if there is an issue with ngen on your system configuration. Sorry I can't be more helpful at this time.
