  • I am having two problems first on 32 bit XP x86:

    Fresh install of WinFX x86 beta 2 on xp pro x86:

    Expression Interactive designer installation run comes up with the error message during attempted install:


    You must install Windows Presentation Foundation Version 6.0.5295.60113 before installing Microsoft Expression Interactive designer.

    It refuses to install. I uninstalled all the previous versions using add remove programs and then used the WinFX removal tool (which reports nothing to be done).. I am sure I downloaded the february preview release..

    I installed it with no reported problems..  

    However I get the message
    "you must install Windows Presentation Foundation Version 6.0.5295.60113 before installing Microsoft Expression Interactive designer." from interactivedesigner.msi when it's run..

    Please also note the other expression product installed on this same installation with NO problems whatsoever..

    Now for my x64 problems:

    Build 5308 upon attempted install tells me:
    " An error occured during the installation of assembly component
    {98CB24AD-52FB-DB5F-A01F-C8B3B9A1E18E} HRESULT: 0x80070006."

    I had no problems reported with winfx and the .net 2.0 has been installed for a long time with no issues on this x64 build and everything else including visual studio seems to work fine..

    HELP!

  • Hi Donald,

    First let us try to get you going on the x86 box.
    a) Make sure that there is not issue with WinFX installer. The easiest way to test this is to try running a WPF application after building from command line or Visual Studio.
    b) If you think WinFX was correctly installer, you can try skipping the version check in our installer (which I think has a bug in it, and we are investigating this tomorrow). For this simply use,
    > InteractiveDesigner.msi SkipAvalonVersionCheck=1

    Please let us know if that helped.
