  • Hi Rache,

    Thank you for your post in MSDN forum.

     

    Some clarification with you

    1, what is your OS?

    2, is errors information the latest?

    3, could you please provide more clarifier information in your reply?

     

    As your error information, I found the latest error information as follows.

    [08/11/10,05:53:10] Microsoft Document Explorer 2008: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft Document Explorer 2008. MSI returned error code 1603

    Frankly speaking, many factors will be caused this 1603 error code.

    I would recommend you could refer the following link, which is similar like your concerns.

    The following link talks about how to locate the cause of this code.

    If it does not work still, I would encourage that you could refer the following steps.

    1, could you please uninstall Visual Studio 2008 on your machine?

    2, could you download Visual Studio 2008 from the following link?

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=83c3a1ec-ed72-4a79-8961-25635db0192b

    3, unable your anti-virus software and some security software

    4. Run your setup file as administrator

    5, install Visual Studio 2008 again

    If the installation is failed, you could follow the following steps one by one.

    1, you could download ‘Collect.exe’, which could help you to collect information during installing products. The following link is: http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkId=8967043

    How to use this tool, you could click the link as follows?

    2, Try to clean your "%temp%" folder (Start Menu >> Run >> Type "%temp%")

    The above step could ensure your installation log is only including the latest installation logs.

    3, unable your anti-virus software and some security software

    4. Run your setup file as administrator

    5, re-install Visual Studio 2008 again

     

    It will create a file named %temp%\vslogs.cab on your system.

    If it does not work, you could refer your log files to narrow down your issue.

    Or you could send your log files to me. (My E-Mail: v-xugong@microsoft.com)
