Visual Studio 6 Setup Error

9 posts in this topic

Hi All,

With full faith in Sadhikov users........


Users trying to install Visual Studio 6 are getting a message after the installatio gets (seemingly) completed that " Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise setup was not completed successfully".


In the setup wizard I had selected the following in various steps:

a ) products
b ) Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual C++
c ) register environment variables


And I went to the Add/Remove programs and tried to UNINSTALL it but even that gave me two errors:

" setup error 544" (title) and "setup is unable to open data file c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\COMMON\Setup\1033\SETUP.stf" , run setup from where" you originally ran it"

and the second error :

" setup error 723" (title) and "setup was unable to read configuration information from the first section of the setup file "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\COMMON\Setup\1033\SETUP.stf" , run setup from where you originally ran it"

The OSes are Windows XP Professinal with either SP1 or SP1.

Please help me in this, as users need this software and I have no idea about this stuff.

Thanks in advance,

are you sure that the setup is complete because it seems to me that some files have gone corrupt.

U can do 1 thing :
First copy the whole setup to HDD and then try installing, atlest to check wether setup is corrupt or there is some other problem..

Hi,


Thanks...

It might not be a virus problem as lot of people are facing this problem and I tried installing directly from a DVD also, did not work in that case also.


Its a common problem, lot of people are facing the same problem but nobody seems to know what is happening, not even Microsoft sites does,nt seem to have any soln.


I will upload screen shots later..

Couple of things-
Enable logging when running the install:
To enable logging during installation, from Start | Run use the following
command:
X:\setup.exe /gc C:\log.txt (where X is your CDROM drive)

Post the log file here from the install on a PC.
Have you tired installing every available option on the DVD?

Below, I have pasted the copy of the mail which I sent to users after I was able to install VS 6.0 successfully in a system, which had earlier shown some problem.

I will update after trying to install in some more systems..
