"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

if you directly used the MSI file to install, try renaming the msi to "1dbcc.msi"
if you used the 2005 redistributable.EXE. Right click and Extract the files from the EXE( you should have winrar or winzip). then rename the EXE inside it to "1dbcc.msi" and double click on it.

Search for Microsoft Windows Installer cleanup utility and install. Then clean the VC redistributable Installation and the error should be gone next time you run your msi.
