sp1 install problems

P: n/a
My SP1 install seemed to want to keep repeating the install. I spent 4 hours
running the install, then it ran again (I got the message up saying it had
finished, then it started again). I didn't realise what it was doing until
after about 30 minutes, and at that point I thought cancelling might
actually undo the original install, so I let it run again (total install
time at this point 8 hours!), I got the install finished message and when it
then tried to install again I cancelled.

Looking in Add/Remove programs I can't see VS 2005 SP 1 listed. In my
"About" for Visual Studio it has version 8.0.50727.762 (SP .050727-7600).

In the Event Log I get the following sequence under Application, all of
which makes me think it hasn't installed. Any ideas what is happening?

Hi
I've seen this problem before, did you have Outlook running when the install
restarted itself? when i saw it it was the whole VS2005 install that was
starting over, and it happened about 3 times on boot up and then whenever
Outlook (not Outlook Express) was loaded, it also did it with Word. I fixed
it by re-installing VS from scratch (both VS2003 and VS2005) after the
re-install it seemed to stop, but don't ask me why

I do use Outlook - not Outlook Express - and it wasn't open, but sometimes I
find Outlook still running in the background even when you think you have
closed it, so that may explain it.

This is due to hotfix kb886904. It must be removed via add/remove programs
before the sp1 will install.
