SYMPTOMS

While the message, "Setup is searching for installed components" is displayed during Visual Studio Setup, the following error message appears:
This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.
When you click Details, this message appears:
ACMSetup caused an Invalid Page Fault in module kernel32.dll.

CAUSE

This problem can occur for a variety of reasons, but it mainly occurs in two scenarios:
  • An Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) component is in use.
  • Mismatched ODBC files or dependencies were placed on your computer by an installation program.

RESOLUTION

If the file is in use, restarting your computer and running Setup again will result in a successful installation.


If restarting your computer does not resolve the error, two possible fixes are available:
If updating MDAC does not resolve the error, then copy the following files to C:\Temp (where C:\ is your system drive). Next, copy the same files in D:\OS\System from Disk 1 of the Visual Studio CD (where D:\ is your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive) to C:\Windows\System. Choose to overwrite the files if prompted.
