How do succeed with installation?
Posted on 2007-11-29
I bought a DeLorme GPS and I need to install software for it, but keep getting these errors. Says I need to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, and cannot find the file vcredist.msi. (says it's a "network resource" and not availble). I downloaded the vcredist_x86.exe from Microsoft and got the same error preventing me from installing that one. I contacted DeLorme technical support and this is what they said:
"Thank you for contacting Delorme Technical Support. Unfortunately looking online a lot of applications can have this issue installing as it appears to be an issue with your operating system. I would recommend installing all available updates from Microsoft for your operating system before trying again. Also make sure to scan your PC for any virus/spyware..."
I have a Compaq laptop computer and am using Microsoft XP Pro operating system. We have a terminal server at work, although I use this laptop as a standalone machine also.
