Installation problems on Windows Vista

    I've had problems installing C1StudioNET2_T306.msi on Windows Vista. BecauseI couldn't uninstall, I installed C1StudioNET2_T108_Setup.msi with the hope this one would be more succesful on Windows Vista. However, this installation gave an error too. Again an uninstall fails with the message that the uninstallation couldn't be finished since the installation failed. When I do a repair (which is initiated by running one of the installer packages) I got a message that the installation is succesful.

    So is there a patch for these installers?  At least I want to get rid of the C1StudioNET2_T108 installation since our software uses C1StudioNET2_T306.

    I've admin rights and I switched UAC. During the initial installation I had VS 2008 installed only. Later on, I've installed VS 2005 too.

    Who can help?

    Hi Peter,

    Once you've completed the install using the repair, the uninstall should work.

    If not, you can reinstall the T2-2006 version over the current 2008 version. It should replace all of the files in your bin directory which would be the equivalent of uninstalling and reinstalling.

    First of all, Make sure you software is compatible with the windows version you are using.
    for that you can.

    - Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    - Click Programs, and then under Programs and Features click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows .
    The Program Compatibility Troubleshooter opens.
    - Click Next to start the wizard.
    - The troubleshooter detects any issues with older programs.
    - Scroll through the list of software programs, select the software title you want, and then click Next.
    - Select Try recommended settings.
    - Click Start the program to test the program with the new settings.
    - Click Next and do one of the following actions depending on what happens
    - If the software opens and can be used, you are done. Click Yes, save these settings for this program.
    - If the software still fails, click No, try again using different settings.

    Try to do this.

    One thing I've noticed is installing msi files (install files) is a pain. One way around this is to create a small bach file that uses the msiexec.exe executable to launch the msi. When referencing the file names, you must fully qualify them.

    Here's an example of one I used to install the Power Tools for Team Foundation Server:

    C:\Windows\System32\msiExec.exe -i C:\Users\rternier\Documents\Downloads\tfpt.msi
    Once you have a batch file (.bat) with that in it, right click it, and choose Run As Administrator.
    And there you go.
