Hi All,

I'm trying to install the VS2005 SP1 on my freshly built XP Home SP2 box. I downloaded VS80sp1-KB926601-X86-ENU and ran it. Every time the update runs, is uses CPU, then all of a sudden, the CPU goes to 0% and it stays there with the initial progress bar for the update stopped about 2/3 of the way into it. The install is not hung (I can cancel it), but that's where it stays.

The machine has no virus scanner (yet), and is up-to-date with Windows Update. There's at least 30Gig free on every disk. As I said, this is a fresh machine with no (other) software installed on it yet. I did try KB925336, but no success.

I looked in the %TEMP% directory and there's a log file in there (VS80sp1-KB926601-X86-ENU-wrapper.log):

+ Launching the patch wrapper

And assistance would be very appreciated!

I waited 10+ hours. There is no extracted .msp/.msi file under %TEMP% - I'm guessing it doesn't even get this far. PerfMon showed zero CPU and no change in memory or activity in the system (or the installer process) over that time.

This issue is not answered. The symptoms as shown in the log file appear to be different than any reported problems. There are error messages in my post, is anyone able to tell me, at least, what these errors are

The maddening thing about this is that this is a FRESH install, fully updated and NOTHING else. Confusing.

Thanks!
