Maximizer / SQL Management Studios Installation Failure with Visual Studio SP1 Missing Error

Maximizer / SQL Management Studios Installation Failure with Visual Studio SP1 Missing Error

Maximizer fails to install when you select SQL Management Studios or when you do a manual install of SQL Express, you get the error: “Another version of Microsoft Visual studio 2008 has been detected that must be updated to sp1”, but Visual Studio is not installed.

Issue:

Chances are you have a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 and what you’re getting is a false positive message from the Toshiba tools installed with the Toshiba Windows 7 installation CD.

Solution:
Open “Regedit” and update the following keys’ value from “0″ to “1″. Please make sure that the SP and SPIndex values are 1 and that the SPName is SP1.

For 32-bit, check the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DevDiv\VC\Servicing\9.0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DevDiv\VC\Servicing\9.0\RED\1033

For 64-bit, check the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DevDiv\VS\Servicing\9.0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DevDiv\VS\Servicing\9.0\VSR\1033

Before you change the key, please back up ‘Registry’ first.
