SyncToy downloading issues: Need Resolution RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dell Latitude running Windows XP (it's only 2 years old) and tried to download SyncToy 2.1.  I got this error screen (whoops, no place to add an image).  It reads:

    Component MS Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components has failed to install with the following error message:

    "A fatal error occurred during the installation of Microsoft Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components."

    The following components were not installed:

    -MS Sync Framework 2.0 Provider Services

    The Following components failed to install:

    -MS Sync Framework 2.0 Core Components

    See the setup log file located at . . . ."


    I use synctoy on my Windows7 machine without a problem.  I tried searching for the uninstalled piece and installing them and got error messages as well.
