Question about Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition Upgrade Version for PC

1 Answer

Cannot Install Visual Studio 2008 on Windows Vista

Error message when installing VS2008:

Installation Requirements: A compatible version of Visual Studio 2008 was not detected on the system. This update is designed for only the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (ENU) product family, and is not compatible with any Express editions.

-To allow successful installation, I've disabled the firewall, and antivirus still the same error message comes every time; refused to execute.

-Rebooted the computer several times, no show.

-Uninstalled the ''seemingly'' installation to reinstall again, still no success.

What next?

Hello,
From the message you get one infers that this is not the full program, but an upgrade to a previous version of Visual Studio. Even if you have a Visual Studio Express edition already installed on your computer, this update is not compatible with it.

Hope it clarifies the message.

"setup was unable to copy


See, "setup was unable to copy the file F:\vb.net \vs2008\readme.htm to your temporary directory .Please make sure that this file exits and rerun setup" its mean the file readme.htm is missing in setup folder of visual studio 2008. So, for this first you have to simply download readme.htm file http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/confirmation.aspx?id=5478 and download direct in your visual studio 2008 folder. Then refresh the folder of visual studio 2008 and run or doble click on setup file.
It will work. :) thank you.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS a compatible version of visual studio 2008 was not detected on the system. this update is designed for only microsoft visual studio 2008(ENU) product family,and is not...


The software you're trying to install is an upgrade from the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional edition. If you do not have that version of Visual Studio installed, you won't be able to install the upgrade.
However, I would recommend you downloaded the Visual Studio 2010 Express edition, it's fully functional and I used it for a long time before upgrading to the professional edition. To be honest the only feature I use in the professional edition is the addon system. Plus, the 2010 Express edition is free and available for anyone.

How to solve the upgrade patch problem for vs2005


Please send me complete details including your operating system and visual studio service pack version. If you are getting this error for windows vista then you can try later version of VS which works fine with vista and also i want to tell you you can use microsoft visual web developer express or microsoft visual c# developer express edition for the same purpose and also they consume less resources than VS.
Thanks

Problem with Compaq Fortran & Vista


I found the solution fortunately:

It's enough to do a right click on the bottom: "Developer Studio" instead of double click, and select: "Run as Administrator" , then select: "Allow" and so on..

Try it, it works!

Error caused while installing visual studio 2005


Why not try The Visual Studio Express 2008 instead?

http://www.microsoft.com/express/vc/

It is free and might be more compatible with Vista.

Error message after installing software


First thing to check is to make sure your computer is compatible with the system requirements of the Barbie Girl. This sounds as if the Barbie Girl program is very old and you are using it on a very new computer. I've had this happen to me on vista with old windows 95 programs. Check your system requirements for that software, if it was designed for windows 95 it might not work. There might be a way to get it working in a compatibility mode which I can help you with, but first make sure your sys reqs are good. What version of windows?
