When installing VS 2005 on Win XP with SP 2 (i.e. SP2 come with my Windows XP Edition) following is the error which i am getting


"Suite Integration Toolkit Executable has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I also tried saving and installing. Still encounter same problem. The same setup is working fine one my friend PC but he has normal windows XP.

Please tell me some way in order to sort out this problem.

Have you tried installing the software with both the firewall and anti-virus turned off?

try booting in safe mode and installing  the software

Try repairing system files by typing sfc/all in  command and providing windows xp cd
 

If you still get the error boot windows xp from bootable cd (via bios) and in setup press R for reparing setup files

I browsed through the readme file and saw that it lists a lot of reasons setup can fail.  Aside from suggesting bad media nad recommending that one install from a network share, I would suggest you make sure you've got .NET framework installed and Windows Installer updated.

Looks like a lot of other people run into the same problem on SP2, but I don't see an updated readme from MS addressing it.  Hopefully those two updates will get you going.

Hello,
I guess that you are trying a clean install...If not i.e. you had some beta VS installed before, then you should use this tool to uninstall beta version then install VS 2005 - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=47598

Also, use this to clean your current windows installer
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301

After all research I made in this regard, I think it worth trying to install with Windows Installer 3.1 - you can download it from here;
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=889482fc-5f56-4a38-b838-de776fd4138c&displaylang=en

If that doesn't work then try uninstalling SP2, then  install VS, once installed then update again to SP2
