Executing VS.NET ERROR: Ms development environment has not been installed for the current user

P: n/a
Can get VS.Net to execute properly.
I'm not the only one having this prob.

The registry deletions don't work for me.

Any users of MVPs have a solution for this?

This error appears to have re-emerged. The KB article that describes the
registry changes was for people who installed the .NET beta, which is
clearly not applicable.

Help me to figure out how to reproduce this error and perhaps we can solve
this, or at least provide info to someone at MS who can jump in.

First off: what versions of the framework do you have installed?
When did you install VS.NET? What version?
What version of the OS did you have installed on the day you installed
VS.NET? Have you upgraded?
Did VS.NET work for some time before it stopped working? How long did it
work? How long has it not worked?
If you are running XP SP2, please provide the order in which you installed
software: framework, sp2, visual studio
Are you running the Visual Studio 2005 beta? If so, what version?
Are you running virus scanning software? If so, what package and version?
Were they running when you installed vs.net or SP2?

The one thing that stands out is that you have framework 2.0 beta paired
with Visual Studio Academic.

Did you install the framework 2.0 before installing Visual Studio Academic
or after?

From Fred Morison in another post found here

Take a look at KB article 824643. It essentially has you manually deinstall
Framework 1.1, then reinstall Framework 1.1 followed by install of Framework
1.1 Sp1, all while running in a "clean boot + Windows Installer service
only" mode. Some of the "uninstall" parts didn't work for me, but manually
deleting the various .Net Framework related .msi files from
C:\<windir>\Installer\ as directed by KB 824643 worked just as well.

Kind of stupid of Microsoft to make us do it this way (deinstall everything,
reinstall everything), but it worked for me after weeks of frustration.

This cleared the Framework 1.1. uninstall problems....

Couldn't get vs.net 2003 Academic version to uninstall so I thought I would
try to install it and if it still errored out then try uninstalling it
again.

So I installed it properly again - successfully asked for serial number
etc...

Tried to run abain and DID NOT get this error when executing vs.net.

It allowed me to register online and looks to be working properly.

--------------------

So what did I do?
Uninstalled framework 2 beta.
Uninstalled framework 1.1 using KB article 824643
And reinstalled vs.net 2003 Academic

All looks well now....

Waisted 2 full days of study on this.

Sorry to intrude, but I have to ask: does anybody else have access to that
PC? The .NET Framework v2 beta had to have been installed by someone or
something. I suspect that your problems were related to the existence of the
beta software.
I'm glad you were able to resolve the problem, and thank you for posting

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the reply.
I try to post my solutions but would prefer to be able to retrieve them 6
months from now.

The install file for the v2 beta had either the same name as v1.1 or a very
non-discript name.
So I could have installed it by mistake when trying to install v1.1.
Or could have at the time of installtion of v2 beta made an informed
decision to go ahead and try v2 beta.
