Visual Studio Express 2013. Package Failed


I have encountered the following error message after finishing Visual Studio Express 2013 installation enter image description here

And here's what I have found out in the log file

[06D8:0C80][2014-12-03T18:24:39]i338: Acquiring package: aspnetmvc4vwd12tools_1014, payload: cabA3BBAEE7F3255814C4DE370C415391E5, download from: bits:// [06D8:15A4][2014-12-03T18:24:52]i000: MUX: ExecuteError: Package (webdeploy_x64_en_usmsi_902) failed: Error Message Id: 2738 ErrorMessage: The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.

Did anyone who has met the same issue help me figure out? Thank you so much

try installing it as a standalone program from here and try to reopen VisualStudio

have a look in System Requirements section

Supported Operating System
Windows 7 Professional, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008,
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Vista, Windows XP
The supported platform is 64-bit for this download. The .NET 2.0 Framework SP1 or greater must be installed.

if it doesn't work try this Microsoft fix. Run the exe that should solve some machine problems

if all of this suggestions don't work you can try these steps

  1. Go to Start-->Run type cmd and press Enter
  2. type cd %systemroot%\system32 and then Enter
  3. type regsvr32 vbscript.dll and the enter
  4. next steps are because you have a 64bit version
  5. type cd %systemroot%\syswow64 and press Enter
  6. type regsvr32 vbscript.dll and press enter
  7. type exit
  8. Re run the installer of WebDeploy
