Installing VS 2005 or 2008 on Vista 64 bit machine

P: n/a

Im running into problems installing either VS 05 or 08 on a Vista
Premium 64 bit machine and, ahem, it isnt going sweetly.

When installing i get an

"Error 1935.An error occured during the installation of assembly
component" when installing either 05 or 08.

Vista Premium comes with .NET Framework 2.0 and Framework 3.5 which
are both present. It also has Framerwork 1.0 SP3 Developer. As an
aside and FYI I also have vista home on the laptop and the difference
between Pro and Home is that home doent have 3.5.

I did a bit of looking (else I wouldnt be asking you kind lot) and
this seems to be a common problem but i cant find a solution for my
case... plenty for XP but thats not applicable here.

I can only throw myself on your mercy and hope that surely im not the
only person wishing to install VS on a vista machine (this issue also
affects 32bit Vista btw)

Regards

This issue should be covered by Microsoft support. Having spent plenty
of time on developer phone support with various tech companies (IBM,
Adobe, Apple to name a few) I would rate Microsoft among the best.
Granted an install issue will probably not put you in contact with
professional dev support services, I believe you'll find someone
friendly and able to help you resolve this and again it should be
covered.

I know it's not going to help you any, but I think it must be a Vista
issue. I installed both of those on XP Pro 64-bit and have never had a
problem....or else I'm just lucky. :)

Are you sure its not a UAC issue? In Vista, install issues often are.
