I'm trying to install Nero 10 - it says it needs various files to install, including Microsoft VC redist 2005 KB973544 (x86). When it tries to install this file I get an error no. 2503 and the installation closes.

Try installing the VC redist 2008 version and see if it gives you that 2503 error

Sorry - I get exactly the same error. I've checked the error number with Microsoft and it seems it may be a problem with my registry. However, I've run tweo different registery cleanup/repair programs and I still get this error.

Then reinstall the VC redist 2008 version. Use the microsoft link above.

Keep me posted on any errors you come across (post dem here)

FYI: This assumes that you have at least .NET Framework(any version) already installed.
