Visual Studio Install issue


  • Hi,

    I'm trying to install Visual Studio 2012 on a Windows 8 machine, which has a previous version of VS2010 for SSDT. 

    The install would just hang for hours, and I had to stop the process to exit.  Eventually after several tries it completed but with errors a- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x64) Package failed.

    Microsoft Windows Operating System the event log is full.

    I tried the common issues – i.e. Windows Update and turning off Antivirus (Windows Defender) but the same error occurs.

  • Hi danno77,

    Thanks for your post.

    For VS install issue, this Visual Studio Setup and installation forum is the right forum.

    Your error may due to the following reasons:

    1. A corrupt Visual Studio installation package.

    To solve this issue, please clarify how you install VS first.

    If it is a iso, try use this tool to verify hash of the iso. The point of the exercise is to generate a hash value (or values) - MD5 and SHA1 - from the .iso file so that it/they can be checked against the known value(s) for that file. Any discrepancy would indicate that the file was corrupted.

    If it is a web installer, refer to the second reason

    2. VSTO may already corrupt. In this way, we need full logs to analyze, try use  to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find from %temp% folder. Please upload the file to   and share the link here.(Note: If a healthy iso didn't fix your problem, the logs are still required)

    By the way, you should make sure you’ve followed these tips:

    1) Disable your Anti Virus software

    2) Update your computer (Windows)

    If you have any more questions, please feel free to let me konw.
