I've been pulling my hair out trying to get this to work. I've tried two different programs, Halo 2 for Pc, and MS Visual Basic Express 2010. They both only get to "VCREDIST.EXE" Then error out with this exact message (Albeit the Processor architecture may be different).

Now i'm not entirely sure which version i'm dealing with here, but i used the C++ 2008 version for generating the above error (Which AGAIN is IDENTICAL to the errors i've been receiveing). Then i looked and saw that i already had Visual C++ 2008 redist. installed, so i am wondering...

If i already have the redist installed, will i receive this error? AND... if i remove it, will i be able to install it again?

Okay, well, it didn't exactly apply to .NET Framework 4, BUT it did give me the idea to see if i really had .NET 4 installed. All i had installed was the Client base, so i installed the complete version. And then i tried Visual Basic again. At first it acted as though the VC 9.0 Runtime installed successfully, then it hit me right in the face:

Why can't Microsoft make anything easy for me?

I don't know what you have done...but I just downloaded this program and installed it on this system (running XP with NET 3.5, SP1 and NET 4.0 installed).

The problem is not Microsoft or its products.

I know... It's just that this thing has been giving me issue after issue after issue. I know it's something with my OS, because i managed to install this without hitch in an XP virtual Machine, but i wish i could make this work! Is there anything i can do to fix this? Because now i'm starting to contemplate just wiping the whole thing and starting over! :smash:

Well...my uneducated guess...is that it's a problem with MS.NET and I would uninstall versions that are not native ot your O/S, using the tool at http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip .

I would then download/install both the 3.5, SP1 and 4.0 versions, if neither is native to the O/S...and then try the install.

Louis

I will move this to the Win 7 forum, where I think it belongs.

Ok. I ran the tool, and downloaded the appropriate installers for the frameworks. .NET 4 installed without problem, but the installer for .NET 3.5 SP1 wouldn't even open! do you think this will cause any issues?




Whoops! Hang on, i think i see a comma between 3.5 and SP1! Lets see if THATS the problem!

And so my problems continue. I attempted to run the 3.5 installer, and it just tells me this:

funny thing is, if i go to Turn Windows features on or off, the box that normally has those options is blank!

Well...to be honest, you should not need 3.5, SP1 since 4.0 is installed with Win 7. There should be no need for an earlier version.

Which may mean that your Win 7 install either has files missing or damaged...I don't know, it's hard to address problems that I cannot duplicate.

Louis

FWIW: I just downloaded the same package and it is currently installing with no problems on my Win 7 install on the same system I used yesterday to install it on my XP install. The package contains a host of programs, including NET Framework 4, which a user needs to run/utilize it.

This is old, but read it and see what may be keeping the installation from going through.
