Description

Installation of Visual Web Developer Express 2010 will not run. The Web Platform Installer shows the message "The product that you are trying to install is not supported on your operating system."

Experimenting, I found that selecting the product via the "Whats New" tab on the installer does work. (at least it's running at the moment!)

My system is a new PC with new, factory installed Win 7 Home Premium.

I had the same error message on a new server. I got it working by running IE as Administrator, then Web PI worked fine.

Log files not possible as the installation did finally work by using the workaround mentioned.

Hello,

Sorry for bothering. 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:

It would be greatly appreciated if you could provide us with that information as quickly as possible. If we do not hear back from you, we will close this issue.

Thanks you,

Same issue with me. One thing to note is that this is a fresh Windows 7 Install. I haven't activated the OS yet. I have tried from both Chrome and IE 9.

This must be new, It worked on my machine about two months ago but I reinstalled the OS (with the same version of W7) and now I can't install? Help
