Microsoft error 2503

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.

Ok, first I you need to do,  update your system (windows update) -get them all.
Then you need to run this tool

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.
