I am trying to install VS TS 2008 on W7 Ultimate (64bit), but I have run into errors during the setup.

Please take note that I have tried to mount the iso to a virtual drive, and also extracted the iso contents to a local folder. Both methods have failed and produce the same error log below.

[10/26/09,03:02:40] Runtime Pre-requisites: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Runtime Pre-requisites. MSI returned error code 1603
[10/26/09,03:02:42] VS70pgui: [2] DepCheck indicates Runtime Pre-requisites is not installed.
[10/26/09,03:02:42] VS70pgui: [2] DepCheck indicates Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 64bit Prerequisites (x64) was not attempted to be installed.

And the list goes on and on.. This is a fresh install of W7, and I have not installed Microsoft Office 2007 at all yet, not sure if it would be causing my errors right now.. I appreciate any help I can get thank you.

    the error states that the prerequisites was not installed. When you started the install, did you see any screen that informed you that prerequisites was being installed ? – Andrew Keith Oct 25 '09 at 22:16
  • Please can you post the full log or at least a bit more? – William Hilsum Oct 26 '09 at 20:22
