Installation Fails on Vista (error code 2869)


The intaller fails with the error code 2869 and no details on Windows Vista with VS2005 SP1. From what I can tell, this is a Windows Installer error code. See http://www.shahine.com/omar/VSTOAddinsAndVista.aspx and http://blogs.msdn.com/mshneer/archive/2007/03/02/windows-installer-fails-on-vista-with-2869-error-code.aspx for a potential explanation/solution.

I got past the 2869 problem by runing the exe (with Run As Administrator) instead of the msi.

You can also just create a .bat file with one line: start [path_to_msi]Right click and "Run as Administrator". All set, works like a charm.

Example line in the bat file: start c:\users\bozo\downloads\SubSonicToolsSetup.msi
