Answer 1

Could you please add some details as shown in this #10? Have you checked whether the file  exists or not?

If the file does not exist, you need to make a reparation of the Visual Studio installation. If you use VS2005 in Windows 7/Vista, please read the following FAQ:

Answer 2

Hi again, you'r right the folder "1033" doesn't exist, it has another folder with the file  PPC_2003_SE_WWE_ARMv4.bin, which is "3082". Another detail i can add about this error, is that after this error message, it throws  another error with this information "Error    1    0x89731C01    Device Connectivity Component" . i m gonna complete the steps you have specified to make a reparation of the visual studio  . Any way i have read an article about the applications required to use the microsoft device emulator, and i realized i dont have installed the Virtual Machine Network Driver, so could it be a reason of this problem  ? i let you know once again i complete the reparation. 

Thanks  

 

Answer 3

When you come back don't forget to answer my first question (the versions, including VS and Windows).
 

Answer 4

I couldn't complete the reparation process, i had a problem  trying to install the visual studio  2005 service pack 1 update for windows vista, it throws  a message  as this one :

"The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the
program to be upgraded bay be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different
version of the program. Verify that the program  to be upgraded exists on your
computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch."

So, i dont know if the problem is that i have a visual studio spanish version and not the english version ......, anyway, the versions of the visual studio i have is the visual studio 2005 professional edition, and the windows, is the windows vista business. how do i fix this ?

 

Answer 5

From what I can see, your installation of VS is corrupted somehow. Try a new Windows user account and make sure you run VS as an administrator.

If that does not work either, I'm afraid you need to reinstall Visual Studio then. Please follow the guide below:

i uninstall the visual studio  and then i installed with another installation, and the problem  persist there, and then i try to install the visual studio 2005 sp1 update, and it still throwing the same message  :

 

"The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the
program to be upgraded bay be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different
version of the program. Verify that the program  to be upgraded exists on your
computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch."

i really dont know what's going on, when i open  the visual studio 2005, it says that there are compatibility issues in the location C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe , i mean i need to install the visual studio 2005 sp1 update and i cant due to the last problem.

 

Answer 7

You've missed something in the FAQ. Please read it carefully. The "Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1" and "Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update for Windows Vista" is *not* the same thing.
