Installation Fails

Dec 11, 2007 at 1:21 PM
I have Windows XP Pro SP2. I installed the pre-req VS 2008 Shell Isolated Mode Redistributable. It shows in the Control Panel Add/Remove programs as installed. When I click on the IronPythonStudio.msi setup, I get a message: "This setup requires Microsoft VS 2008 Shell Isolated Mode..." . I re-booted, I re-installed everything, and I get the same. I am an Administrator on the system. I also tried the Command Prompt install and got the same error message. The installed version of the Isolated Mode Redistributable shows as 9.0.21022. What am I doing wrong?

Sorry for the posting...I found my problem. Maybe this will help others. After you run the Install for the MS VS 2008 Shell Isolated Mode Redistributable, you must then go to the folder (in my case: C:\VS 2008 Shell Redist\Isolated Mode) and click on: "vsshellisolated_enu.exe" to actually install the redistributable runtime.

Now my IronPython Studio works. Looks like a great product!
