I cannot install VS 2008 in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-04-05
I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 ultimate on my PC, then I installed SQL Server 2008 Enterprise edition, then I installed MS Office 2007 Enterprise, and when I was installing Visual Studio 2008 System Team edition, I tried to performed a custom install, but I did not wanted to install on C: drive since it was short on space, so I tried to installed on D: drive with more space, so it came with this message below:
You cannot change the location of the component or its subcomponents because the component has already been stored in a different location, or it has a dependency on a file already stored in a different location.
The following programs are causing vertical integration to occur:
Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2.0 - ENU
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Shell (integrated mode) - ENU
To change the file path, you must uninstall the programs listed above and reinstall them in the location where you want to store the files shared with Visual Studio.
I uninstalled the applications above and was finally able to chose drive D:\ on the VS 2008 setup. But now when I try to install VS 2008 again, it comes with a nasty error message and is not able to install VS 2008.
My question is how can I re-installed the applications above? Then I check the Application Event Log in control panel, and I found error 1935. I was searching and found that is a problem related to re-installing .NET framework 3.5. What is the real problem, and what is the solution?
I would appreaciate very much your help on this matter,
