I tried to install Visual Studio Release Candidate 2010  on one one Windows 7 - 64 – Bit machines. Unfortunately the setup just does not start. If I try to start the same setup (to be sure that hash is correct) from other Win7 64-Bit machine it starts successfully.

Note that my machine which cannot start the setup had previously installed VS 2010 Beta 2. I did my best to uninstall bunch of components in the right order. But, who knows.

To workaround this problem I started the setup.exe in Setup folder and not setup.exe in the root of installation media (ISO, DVD or whatever you have). The setup.exe has been started elevated.

Same problem, win7 32bit. I tried to run Setup\setup.exe, but got 0xc0000006 error. Any ideas why?

Pls extract it on to the Folder , and then run Setup.exe file from that folder.It is possible to install.
