Visual Studio .NET 2005 Installation Problem

Visual Studio .NET 2005 Installation Problem

  • Comments 15

I was trying to install Visual Studio .NET 2005 Beta 1 on my laptop over the holiday, and I immediately received an error that said I needed to remove "Visual Studio .NET Prerequisites - English". At various times, this laptop has had the PDC release of VS.NET 2005 and one of the Community Technology Previews installed on it, but both of them have been completely uninstalled, and I couldn't find any remnants of either in Add/Remove Programs. I crawled the registry and removed a few suspicious keys relating to Visual Studio .NET version "8.0" and the .NET Framework version "1.2", but that still didn't help resolve the issue. Fortunately, I was able to find someone else with a similar problem in a post at Channel 9. DanTheMan came through with the following tip that ended up solving my problem:

  1. Open "%systemroot%\Installer" in Windows Explorer.
  2. Choose the "Detail" view.
  3. Right-click on the column headers and select the "Comments" column.
  4. Locate the .msi file that says "Visual Studio .NET Prerequisites..." (or something similar) in the "Comments" column.
  5. Right-click on the .msi file and choose the "Uninstall" action.

Now why didn't I think of that!? Thanks, Dan!

  • Or, you can run following command: -

    msiexec /x {4DA0DC5F-5E58-4FC0-A508-56E90AC5AAC7}

    to uninstall "Visual Studio .NET Prerequisites - English"
  • I had the same problem as well, as Bhupen said you can just run:

    msiexec /x {4DA0DC5F-5E58-4FC0-A508-56E90AC5AAC7}

    I found this out when reading the 'known issues' file on the DVD. Its quite surprising that they didn't give more prominence to this bug considering how many people it must have affected.

    I'd like to say that I think you're all doing a marvelous job on VS.NET 2005, its come a long way (in terms of stability and performance IMHO) since the last release.

    I'm really impressed - I think MS have really cornered the market on IDEs.
  • And to think that I actually looked for something in the readme files...guess I didn't look closely enough!

    Thanks for the comments, Robert. I agree that VS.NET 2005 is shaping up to be an amazing release, and I think it's because of our tight community involvement. I hope we keep it up.
