"Please wait while windows updates..."

I recently got a new system, and re-installed studio. It was working fine,
but now whenever I start it I get a prompt that says:

"Please wait while windows configures visual studio .net - english."

If I wait until it completes, which takes a minute or two, all is well and
I can cancel the process too without incident. However, it's really
annoying. The only thing I can think of is that I installed office a day or
two ago, but I can't remember if it started doing this immediately
afterwards or not.

Any ideas? Thanks for any help!

It's related to the order certain products were installed I seem to recall.
If you search Google, probably for that exact phrase you should see messages
from lots of people and the solution was posted there too.

Hi,

May be your problem was related to Crystal Reports.
How to tell if Crystal Reports is the cause: Look in the Application event
log (My Computer/Manage/Computer Management (Local)/Event
Viewer/Application). If there are entries with "Source" MsiInstaller, and
"Type" Warning which say:

Detection of product '{005F0409-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}', feature
'Crystal_Reports', component '{C4D8FF3D-945F-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}'
failed. The resource '?^\Program Files\Common Files\Merge
Modules\Database_Access_enu.msm' does not exist.

OR

Detection of product '{005F0409-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}', feature
'Crystal_Reports' failed during request for component
'{DA28CA4A-27CA-486A-923F-5A4317BB70CE}'

Then this likely is the culprit.

Possible Fix: Uninstall Crystal Reports (if you just got it as part of the
default VS install and don't need it), using Add/Remove Programs, Visual
Studio .Net Enterprise Architect (Change/Remove)

Hope this helps,
Best regards,

Renaming the DLL did it... Studio prompted me again for the disks during
startup, and it appears to have repaired itself.

FYI this was studio 2000.

Thanks a million!

Hi,

Thanks for posting.

I agree with Tom. This issue may be caused by Office. Let's try the
followings to resolve it:

1. If you are using Office XP, please install the service pack at the
following site:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...9A4-31FC-480B- 9CD9-ADCCB6997CE3&displaylang=EN

2. Or, we may rename the file "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft
Shared\Office10\MSO.DLL" and let VS.Net to finish the repair process.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

I had the exact same problem, with W2K Pro in a Domain, Office 2000 distributed by group policy and Visual Studio 2002 installed manually. The culprit was indeed mso.dll, and repairing VS2002 does NOT solve the problem. As mentioned you must delete mso.dll and then start VS2002. It will prompt you for some of the CD of VS2002, and after that it works picobello. Note that in my case the event viewer gave

Detection of product '{005F0409-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}', feature 'dotNET_Framework_SDK' failed during request for component '{C763CD13-6E1E-4166-8C78-D274B266E9B6}'

which is different from what other troubled users have found.

Good luck
