PLEASE HELP. i am very angry that microsofts own plugins dont work with
their own operating system and I must pay $60 to have them fix it. I am not
going to pay them to fix their own problem. I have spent $180 on 3 games and
NONE of them work...

Microsoft teams certainly tested installing VS C++ 2005 SP1's REDIST on
Windows Vista, but you are clearly hitting some kind of error specific to
your system or the files you downloaded. The error is a bit vague, so you
should look at the system and application event logs to see if there's
anything more specific to indicate the cause of the problem.

From a quick search of the internet on 'error 1935', it seems like people
who have run into problems like this had some kind of trial version of
Visual Studio installed. I'm assuming this was a FRESH install and not an
UPGRADE install?

Sorry for ranting on microsoft, I'm just upset. The computer was a fresh
build and I installed a new copy of OEM vista ultimate. Can anyone help me? I
am new to vista.

I also am having this problem. I did a complete re-format and fresh install and still the same error. I downloaded the file via the link you provided and still no luck.

Any extra information on this topic would be great! :)

Edit:
Add. My error is the exact same as the image that Tim posted.

I am having the same problem in trying to install Acid Music Studio by Sonic Foundry. Same error and everything. I had never installed any version of Visual Studio and when I try to install it, it fails. I even tried uninstalling it, in case there was a pre-existing version in my system and it says it cannot be found.

I'm at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Situation: Fresh clean install of Vista Ultimate OEM with SP1 & new
updates. When attempting to install Nero v8.3.2.1, install failed asking
me to install Visual C++ Redistributable. I went to Microsoft's site and
discovered that their version 2005 does not indicated compatibility with
Vista, whereas their version 2008 does. I downloaded both. I tried both,
niether works. This is a fresh install with nothing on it. This is all
Microsoft. The 2008 Error 1935 has an error during installation of
assembly ..... and ends in HRESULT: 0x80070005. The 2005 Error 1935
(same error basically) but does not provide any error code at end.

If anyone has solved this beast, I'd sure appreciate feedback.
