Installation of Vista 5.0.x on Windows Vista unsuccessful

Issue

Installing Vista 5.0.x on Windows Vista and it failed.

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • Windows Vista
  • Vista 5.0.x

Cause

Vista 5.0.x is not compatible with Windows Vista

Resolution

First, uninstall anything Vista 4.3.x to 5.0.x installed including Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Visual Runtime C++ stuff. If they won't all uninstall, you may have to do a system restore to some point previous to the TAC Vista install. Next remove the c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data assuming that TAClogdata.* is there. It might be in MSSQL.2 or other.

You should then be able to install.
