Visual Studio 6 Setup Error

Recommended Posts

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,

TechThaha

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?

HI,

 

 

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..

Please follow the following procedure to Install Visual Studio 6.0.

 

 

1) If you have already tried to Install VS 6.0 the start from step 2, otherwise from step 3

 

 

 

2) Go to the following page and follow the procedure mentioned there carefully to uninstall the failed installation:

 

http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;248697&spid=3042&sid=194

 

 

 

3) Go to the following site and follow the mentioned procedures carefully to perform a clean installation:

4) First Install Visual Basic (only), restart
