Unable to install enterprise library 3.1 on Vista

Hi

I'm trying to install enterprise library 3.1 on a laptop runing Vista Ultimate and Visual Studio 2008. At the end of the installation the installer always receives an error 2869 and rolls back the installation. The error always occurs when BlockFactory is installing. I found on google some solutions to the 2869 error, (e.g. run as administrator, disable UAC, ...) but nothing did the trick for me. I'll post here a log file which I created during the installation (it's only a part of it). So does anyone has an idee how to solve the problem? I really need enterprise library for my guidance automation package.

You have to uninstall GAX and GAT before install EntLib 3.1 on vista

Hi,

I'm in the same boat as Krispi here.

Nixar, ok, no GAX/GAT for install. But how do I get those installed aftewards.
No offense, but one of EntLib's greatest assest is Guidance(s).
And at this time, 4.0 is not an option as we are not rolling it to production any time soon.

Regards,

Eric.

Hi

I fixed my problem by installing VS2005. I had VS2008 running on Vista Ultimate when I received the errors. I thought entlib 3.1 didn't need vs2005 but apparently it does. I don't know exactly which files or registry keys it needs but after installing vs2005 on my machine I could install entlib with out a problem.
