Problem With installing VS2005 SP1


Recommended Posts

Hi there every one

I installed Windows Vista Business edition lately.. Installed Visual Studio Pro 2005..

now each time I run VS.. it gives kinda warning that VS has compatibility issues with my windows version... So I updated my windows and downloaded VS 2005 SP1 and tried to install it... it gives me this error

"The upgrade patch cannot installed by Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded is messing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program. Verify that the program to be upgraded exist on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch".

I didn't install the SP1 beta for VS 2005... and interestingly I get this error...!!!

don't know what to do.. please help

Thanx in advance..

It's been about 3 months since I took VS2005 off my system but with Vista there was a special vista patch besides the SP1. You need that. Actually I think if you run windows update and have it set to update other programs it will automatically install what you need.
