VS2008 SP1 Installation problem when installing the Patch Removal Tool RRS feed

  • 問題

  • Hi,

    I am trying to install VS2008 SP1 DVD. In the installation wizard. It asked me to use the Microsoft Visual Studio Patch removal tool
    I downloaded the VS2008-PatchRemovalTool-x86.exe and execute the file, I got an error saying
    VS2008-PatchRemovalTool-x86.ex is not a valid Win32 application.

    Should I try uninstall VS2008 to resolve this problem? Or is there other problem on my machine preventing me from installing it.

    I am current using Windows XP Pro and have the following installed:
    Visual Studio 2005
    Visual Studio 2008
    - Hotfix KB952241
    - Hotfix KB944899

    Thanks

    From the error message, I agree with Martin that it is the corrupted exe, you may try to re-doanload it and try again.

  • Hi Dicky,

    I had similar problem before, when I upgrade my VS2008 to SP1, but I have different error message. I remember that they ask me to download VS2008 PatchremovalTool as well, I cannot remember why it does not run properly on my computer.  I think If you un-install the whole VS2008, and install it, It should work again. (I did un-install and install it again, it just work fine)

    Here it is my post

  • It seems that the file you have downloaded is corrupted.

     

    Have you tried to download the exe file again? and, have you installed any anti-virus / anti-malware software on your Windows XP?

  • Hi,

     

    It was a DVD I am trying to install from. Since all my collegues where able to install it using the DVD, I am guessing something is not right with my VS 2008. I am going to try uninstall any VS 2008 hotfix that I have for now. If the installation file, I will remove the entire VS2008 and reinstall it again.
