Another version of Microsoft Visual studio 2008 has been detected on this system

 

Problem:- I was trying to install the Client components for sql server 2008 R2, when i encountered the error below

 

“Another version of Microsoft Visual studio 2008 has been detected on this system that must be updated to SP1. please update all the visual studio 2008 installations to SP1 level, by visiting Microsoft Update.

 

Solution:- Try to remove any prior version of Visual studio 2008 and also modify the registry to be able to run the installation.

 

Open Regedit and update the Key value “SP” from “0” to “1” under the path here

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DevDiv\VS\Servicing\9.0

 

Rerun the Installation

 

Shalom
