Once you installed Visual Studio Orcas,
I think it's better to wait for a few minutes.
If you click the "finish" button and install another program immediately,
The error "an instance of setup is already running" will ocurred.

Thanks for your feedback. I apologize for my mistake.
I try to repro the issue on the Windows Vista X86/X64.
1) Download the Visual Studio Codename Orcas Beta1
2) Install the Orcas to c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 (X64 platform)
3) Click "Finish" button at the final page.
4) Observe if error occurred.

Actual resutls:
A few minutes later, visual studio installed successfully.

Please do the install on vista. I marked the OS as vista and you should repro there. I did not try install on XP yet.
