I'm stumped now. I thought it was a simple fix since I had the same problem installing on Vista but it seems that you have other issues now. I'll have to leave it to those better equipped to help.

okay, a tech friend came over to look at my laptop. cleaned my registry, the whole bit and downloaded the latest server pack for Vista (SP2, i only had SP1)...

tried to install the redistributable once again, still the same trouble, same with avast!... avast! installs, but i can't open it (same old side by side thing)...

ugh. it's been 2 days. help me, please...

post script.... my apologies for any brusqueness/rudeness on my part. this rather frustrating, as i've had my laptop for over a year and this is the first obstacle i've run across that wasn't easily cleared up. :-\

Do you have the C++2005 redistributable installed?

Are you trying to install the C++2008 SP1 redistibutable? You may have to install just the regular one before you can install the SP1 which is an update.
