I just received a laptop as a hand-me-down, and have been trying to put everything I need on it. As the title suggests, I am attempting to install the MS Visual C++ 64-bit version (I've got 64-bit Vista, by the way). I've been at this for hours, searching and trying everything from registry cleanup utilities to running MalwareBytes to system restoring, literally every suggestion I could find through Google short of a repair install, and I'm at my wit's end. Microsoft's support pages are...less than helpful at best. Every time I open the installer, it gets near the end of the extraction, then comes up with this error:
Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly
processorArchitecture="x86",type="win32"'. Please refer to Help and Support for
more information. HRESULT: 0x80070002.
I've been avoiding a repair install because as this is a hand-me-down, the recovery dvd that came with it is long gone. I've tried running an "sfc /scannow" in CMP, but receive a "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service." message every time, even while running as admin, and is yet another problem I have yet to find a solution for. Anyway, I appreciate if you've taken the time to read all this, but I figure it's worth a shot. Any ideas or suggestions on how to remedy this error? Thanks!
EDIT: I put this in the "all others" forum because I'm not sure if this is a problem with MSVC++ or something else. I am able to install other programs though, so I am stumped.
