      I am not having any luck getting AJAX library to install.  It appears to be updating Visual Studio 2008 and displaies an error:

            There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.  A progrm run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.

      It then finishes with

            Telerik RadControls Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error. ...

      I am running on a 64bit Win 7 and executing msiexec from withing a cmd prompt Run as Administrator.

      I see a lot of similar install problems in the forums, but they all appear to be different scenarios.  I am attaching the msiexec log file [I would be if it was allowed!!].

      The error seems to be on Visual Studio 2008.  I have toggled off the 2008 features, but the Install still seems to be trying to update 2008.   Is there some way to turn this off??
      I have 2008 installed because uninstalling it after installing 2010 used to (and probably still does) break the Visual Studio 2010 install.

    Code Shoveler opened a support ticket and after some investigation we were able to determine the cause for the issue.

    In essence the issue was caused by a corrupted Visual Studio integrated help system, preventing the installer us from deploying our offline documentation.

    The issue was resolved by performing the following steps:
    1) Open C:\Program Files\Microsoft Help Viewer\v1.0\HelpLibManager.exe.config
    2) Set the FirstTimeRun value to True
    3) Open the "Help Library Manager" (in Visual Studio 2010, Help -> Manage Help Settings)
    4) Select Choose online or local help
    5) Select I want to use local help
    6) Try viewing the VS 2010 Help (Help -> View Help)

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
