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,

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:

 

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=248347

 

 

 

4) First Install Visual Basic (only), restart

 

5) Install MSDN, restart

 

6) Install Visual C++, restart

 

7) Then Install "Graphics".

 

or any other tool from now on..
