Hi friends, I have an issue here, this is all about Error 2869 when trying to install the Visual Basic Upgrade Companion , while  I am on the process of installing it to my computer, I meet en error message, the error message goes like The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2869.

 

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. 
 
This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2869

When that error message appeared on my screen, honestly I have a hard time understanding it because of how it was stated, but when I try to understand it the bottom line is installation failure because of that I get another copy of the installer when I try to install it again same error message appeared please share your experience on this error message. 

Thanks.

Here the error message found failed in code that you use. This copy of software you installed is basically can not cover up your windows. Try to install the latest version. Like your Windows or choose a software that is the main reason. No need to re-install it again and again.

Try to find your server connection or windows SP. And last visual basic code should be use in proper way. The RAM you use go to full because if it installs, it contains lots of folder to save.

Here there are 10000 files or more. 2.5, 2.8 GHz you need to support. f don't try to remain the program.

Home based or local connection must check out. Sometimes it will be restricted form your connection.

Thanks

Hi Jamyjolts!

Error 2869 is a generic error code which means it does not tell the exact cause of the error. You can find out the exact nature of the error by following these steps:

a. Download ORCA if you don't have it. This tool provides a graphical interface to aid you in assessing the nature of the error. It is only available in the Windows SDK for Windows Installer Developers.

b. After installing it, find the file setup.msi from the Visual Basic Upgrade Companion (VBUC) installer folder. Right click and select "Edit with ORCA" from the menu:

c.ORCA opens and voila! On the leftmost panel, find and highlight the "Error" line. On the right-hand panel right-click and select Add Row:

d.Enter "1001" for the Error, and "Error [1]:[2]" on the Message as shown. Press OK and the table should look like the following:

e:Save the file in ORCA after editing, press that X, and launch the VBUC installer once again. Now you will get a much clearer error:

As you can see in this example the error was caused by not having one of the requirements so try installing Visual Studio (2005 or 2008) installed. If another error besides this pops out feel free to PM me. Also, if the error still persists after you have installed Visual Studio 2005 or 2008 or you already have VS and the error pops out then you may not have installed the .NET Framework 2.0 Software Development Kit (SDK).

This can be installed alongside Visual Studio 2005 by selecting the “.NET Framework SDK >Tools” option during installation and must be installed separately for Visual Studio 2008 for either x86 or x64, depending on your operating system

I hope it helped.

Cheers.
