Recently I installed Microsoft Office 2013 on my laptop. I first did a complete uninstall of the existing Office 2010 installation using a hotfix from Mircosoft.
After this installation I realized that Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 no longer starts. I need this to develop Reporting Services reports as our RS server is still running on SQL 2005. I tried doing a repair, but when I look up the vs_install.msi file it tells me the location is unavailable. This version of VS came installed with the SQL Server installation on my laptop. It's the Premier Partner edition.
Anyone have any idea how I can get this to work again without having to re-install half my laptop?
Thanks.
