When trying to install VS 2010 Ultimate RC, I am getting "A problem has been encountered while loading setup components" error message displays and the install is aborted. I reinstalled the Beta version and it works fine.

Thanks for reporting the issue.
Could you please upload a setup log file to help us investigate the issue?
You can get the log files with the following steps:
1) Download collect.exe from the link below. http://go.microsoft.com/?LinkId=8967043
2) You may choose to save the tool for later use, or to run directly.
3) The utility creates a compressed cabinet of all the VS and .NET logs to %TEMP%\vslogs.cab.

You can get more details about how to get the log files here:

Thank you,
Visual Studio Product Team.
