Unable to install on Office 2010

Jan 14, 2011 at 10:28 AM

When trying to install NodeXL 1.0.1.159 on a computer with Office 2010 I get the following error:

Component Visual Studio Tools for the Office system 3.0 Runtime Service Pack 1 has failed to install with the following error message:
"This action is only valid for products that are currently installed. "

The following components failed to install:
- Visual Studio Tools for the Office system 3.0 Runtime Service Pack 1

I believe this is caused by the Visual Studio Tools requiring you to have Office 2007 to be able to install (which it also states on it's homepage).

So, how can I install NodeXL to be used with Office 2010 ?

Mats:

I'm investigating this.  In the meantime, please try the following:

* Unzip the NodeXL_1.0.1.159.zip file you downloaded.  (You've probably done this already.)

* In Windows Explorer, double-click the file named Dnrd.msi, not the one named Setup.exe.

* Tell me if NodeXL installs successfully.
