Error when installing VS2008 SP1 Beta on Windows 2008 VPC

Filed under: Visual Studio 2008 — patrickyong @ 6:01 am

I got the below error msg from the log

Exe (C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (Beta)\dotnetfx35setup.exe) failed with 0x80070643 – Fatal error during installation. :
[5/14/2008, 13:32:27] (IronSpigot::ExeInstallerBase:: PerformAction) PerformOperation on exe returned exit code 1603 (translates to HRESULT = 0x80070643)

[5/14/2008, 13:32:27] (IronSpigot::LogUtils::LogFinalResult) Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070643), Fatal error during installation.

I am doing this in a VPC environment with the below software installed

  • Windows Server 2008 Standard RTM
  • Visual Studio 2008
  • Office 2007 w/SP1
  • Windows SharePoint Services w/SP1
  • SQL Server 2008 Feb 08 CTP

Already posted my issue in the forum, will update the blog if I manage to find a solution
