    I get the same problem while trying to instal the Visual Studio proffesional
    editon ( trial 90 days ) like most people do.It fails always on the same
    point:
    "Web authoring component"
    This problem has many discussions on forums on the web. Many solutions
    suggested that work for some but most people still are with the same problem.
    I tried various intallations including the expess editions ( one by one )
    the iso image ( using daemon and burn on disc ). I carried out tens of
    propable solutions and nothing. Always the same at the same time. It is
    getting very frustrating. How microsoft provides something as a final product
    and it has some many bugs?????????Anybody knows of a solution please some
    help would be greatly appreciated. By the way below I include my laptop specs
    and the error log created. Thanks

    Dell XPS1710
    Intel centrino duo 2.0
    2gb ram
    100gb disk
    Vista Ultimate

    The Error log :

    Mr. Arnold Guest

    I'll assume you're doing the install using Run as Administrator.

    I'll assume that Vista is not an OEM version that was pre installed by the
    manufacture.

    I'll assume you didn't upgrade to Vista over the top of XP.

    Did You Install The IIS Option From The Vista DVD First?

    I Installed Visual Studio And It Gave Me A Message But Didn't Fail. Just
    FYI

    I seem to recall uninstalling some Office web component to get my Visual
    Studio to install.

    I have Vista Ultimate on 4 machines and MS Visual Studio 2008 on three of
    them. All installations went smoothly without a hitch.

    On two of the machines I had Visual Studio 2005 installed prior to Visual
    Studio 2005. They appear to be able to coexist. I use all of them heavily
    and daily.

    I got a disk form MS with autorun exec I think. I am an MSDN subscriber.
    before getting the disk I tried to download VS2008 a few times and open the
    iso image only to find that the files size was 2.3 Gb but the directory was
    almost completely empty. With the exception of readme.txt file my browsers
    (I used winimage.exe) saw nothing. I burned the file on DVD with the same
    result. I posted on MSDN sites and nobody could give me any meaningful info
    with the exception of one guy who said that he got his disk a week before
    and I should expect mine as well. It did arrive a few days later.

    If you have a MS DVD with VS2008 and Vista Ultimate then unless you do
    something strange, there should be no problem. I also want to add that as
    typical of me I do a few installs, some of them fail for reason of my doing
    something stupid and I end up reinstalling it or even Vista and then doing a
    new install of VS2008. Thus in fact I installed VS2008 perhaps 10 times
    until finally I got a hang of it and had precisely what I wanted.

    Now, I just checked MSDN site and it turns out people have found a solution
    which appears to be a complete solution for this problem.

    Check this thread:

    http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PageIndex=1&SiteID=1&PageID=1&PostID=2453549#2453549

    It appears this guy uninstalled IIS temporarily and then reinstalled it. I
    actually was about to suggest to you to do the opposite.

    This appears to be another thread offering a different solution:

    Some more:

    Appears to be another thread with a guy claiming that he solved the same
    problem with a tip:
    http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/sh...tid=2453549&sb=0&d=1&at=7&ft=11&tf=0&pageid=0

    To get more just key at MSDN for "Web Authoring component." There are more
    threads over there.

    Good luck, Vista is there for you.

    Thanks guys for the speedy replies. Most solutions suggested were already
    tried some new that did not work. As for the Windows Vista version that 'Mr
    Arnold' asks I have bought Windows Vista Ultimate OEM version. It did not
    came from manufacturer. Did not upgrade to vista. It was clean install. Did
    not have previous versions. What does it matter if it is OEM version?? The
    IIS option someone mentioned; I do not recall such option.

    Thanks again
