Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package installation error.
I seem to be unable to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86).
While installing this message is present: "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable"
After a while this error message appears and the installation freezes:
Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VC80.MFC,type="win32",version="8.0.50727.4053",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",processorArchitecture="x86"'. Please refer to Help and Support for more information
The error first appeared during the installation of the Shogun 2 where it was attempting to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 package.
I tried to uninstall the C++ files that where on my computer (hoping a fresh install would help) but it even froze while trying to uninstall. I had to use Ctrl+Alt+Del to close it. It's no longer shows as being on my computer but I have my doubts that it uninstalled
I run a Vista Ultimate Service Pack 2 32bit operating system.
If you receive a 1935 error when you try to install software, the Windows file system transaction log has become corrupted. The transaction log is used by the Windows file system to recover when a file error occurs. It can also happen if there is an
error with the installation of .netframework.
Step 1: To correct this install error, you need to clear the log.
a. Open an Administrator command prompt: Right-click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator" and click "Allow" for the elevation prompt
b. In the command prompt, type the command below:
fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\
c. This assumes that C: is the drive in which Vista is installed. If it is installed on another drive like D:, please change the drive letter appropriately.
d. Reboot the system.
e. Install the software and check.
Step 2: Check if you are able to install in clean boot.
