    Problems with Excel since Installation of VS 2005 (Visual Studio 2005 Version 8.0.50727.42)

    Hello everybody,

    I just installed VS on my computer. Now I face some severe problems with Excel in combination with AddIns. I use the Name Manager (a wonderful and extremely helpful tool for Excel) and some other tools (such as smart indenter for VBA). As soon as they are active, Excel forces me to install some missing components from the VS software. When I feed the drive with the requested CD, the installation process starts, but never reaches the end... When I disable all mentioned tools, everything runs fine, but if they are active...
    Oh, before I forget it: I use Excel 2002 SP3.
    Here*' some information about the VS installation:

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
    Version 8.0.50727.42 (RTM.050727-4200)
    Microsoft .NET Framework
    Version 2.0.50727 SP1

    Are there any hints about this? I feel quite desperate...

    I have no personal experience with this problem, but if you re-run the VS installer, are there any components that do not already run from the hard drive? If so, you could install those now.

    Also, if the tools require older or newer versions of the .Net framework, make sure those are still around and didn't get updated out of existence.

    Hi Jefferson,

    I tried to re-run the installer several times (in fact, I did nothing else yesterday...), but it was of no effect. Also, when I feed the CD-drive with the requested installation-CD, the setup starts to install the "missing" component (it is impossible something is missing, since I did a full installation) and hangs up short before finishing the process.
    I remember to have faced this problem before about two years ago, but I do not remember the solution (bad luck) ;-(
    Maybe, someone knows something about problems with VS2005 in connection with VB6?

    Thanks for your support!

    Hello again,

    I found the solution, and it seems to be typical for Microsoft...
    After re-installing the Office XP, everything runs fine again.
