Installing QC11 via .msi - Visual C++ Error

Question

When trying to install QC11 via .msi-File it does not work in a VMWare Image.

 

After installing Visual C++ Runtime (prerequisite) while running the .msi an Error message occurs that reads:

"Cannot complete installation: VC++ 2005 redistributable is not installed. Contact your system administrator"

I've tried this on the following platforms:
* Windows 7 (64 Bit), IE9
* XP (V5.1.2600), IE7

If the client is installed via the URL it works.

 

Answer

Run IE as admin

My 50 cents (when Run as Admin isn't an option): Some companies push the Visual C++ Runtime via Windows Update. So if you encounter this problem, try running Windows Update manually first, and reboot your pc. Perhaps the problem "solves itself" ;-)

 

If not ... contact an Admin.
