MVC3 failed installation RRS feed

  • User-679374827 posted

    I'm trying to install MVC3 on a machine with Visual Studio 2010 SP1, MVC1, and MVC2 (Windows 7).  I've attempted to install via direct download (AspNetMVC3ToolsUpdateSetup.exe) and via Web Platform Installer (each time running as Admin).  With the direct download I'm getting the error

    Calling MsiInstallProduct(c:\temp\ext27692\AspNetWebPages.msi,
    MSI (c:\temp\ext27692\AspNetWebPages.msi) Installation failed. Msi Log: Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update_20110913_115236432-MSI_AspNetWebPages.msi.txt
    PerformOperation returned 2 (translates to HRESULT = 0x80070002)
    Action complete
    OnFailureBehavior for this item is to Rollback.
    Action complete

    Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070002), "The system cannot find the file specified. " (Elapsed time: 0 00:00:07).

    The WPI install tells me it's successful, but MVC3 is not installed (as determined by Programs and Features list).

    So far I've attempted to reinstall VS2010, uninstall and reinstall VS2010, uninstall and reinstall MVC2, and, after focusing on the problem with AspNetWebPages.msi, install Web Matrix.  Web Matrix did install Asp.NET Web Pages, so I tried the direct download MVC3 install again.  This time I get:

    MSI (c:\temp\ext27692\AspNetWebPagesVS2010Tools.msi) Installation failed. Msi Log: Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update_20110913_141258646-MSI_AspNetWebPagesVS2010Tools.msi.txt

    Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070002), "The system cannot find the file specified. " (Elapsed time: 0 00:00:06).

    Running the WPI install again tells me it was succesful (DownloadManager Information: 0 : Install return code for product 'ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update Installer' is Success), but MVC3 is still not installed

    I'm not sure at this point what might be wrong with my system, but I'm running out of things to try.  Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me advice?  I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,

    Michael

    After WPI install have you tried to open Visual Studion 2010 and see if the templates are there? There is no entry in Programs and Features list for MVC3
