There an alternative to workaround this issue:

1.     Download the appropriate MSIs  and save them to your hard disk

2.     From the Start Menu, click All Programs and Accessories

3.     Find the Command Prompt icon, right-click it and choose "Run as Administrator". Then accept the User Account Control prompt

4.     Change the command prompt directory to the location you saved your MSI installer files, eg cd c:\downloads

5.     Launch the appropriate installer files from the command prompt, eg msiexec /i <msi_installer>.msi

Also close any instance of VS 2005 if you have one opened.
