I deleted your duplicate post in the General section - it's not necessary to post twice, and this is the right section since it involves version 8.x.

Maybe this topic will help:

I started it on both Manual and Automatic and even rebooted the computer and still got this message:
MS Visual C++ Runtime 9.0 Service Pack 1 could not be installed. Use Windows Update to manually install.

I am sorry but I cannot install version 8.2.2.2 or version 8.3.

FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is this the solution?:

I fought with this problem for about two weeks. I started to epitomize Einstein's definition of insanity. I installed the downloaded runtimes from Microsoft, updated it (never actually needed the update), tried to install, cleaned the registry, tried to install, deleted the package from microsoft, tried to install, cleaned the registry, tried to install... Sometimes I rebooted sometimes not. Anyways none of that worked. I finally got the idea to try to install the package that was distributed with Ad-Aware.

Here are the steps I took. They're a little convoluted, but if you know a little about systems you should be able to get it from here. I'd be interested to see if this works for anyone else.

############

I started the Ad-Aware install program, and clicked through the options until the "Install" button was displayed.

Opened a cmd prompt (a browser window would do as well).

cd %TEMP%

I was able to identify that the Visual C++ runtime that you were installing was located in: "%TEMP%\mia*.tmp\date\Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime 9.0 (includes ATL and MFC) Service Pack 1\mFileBagIDE.dll\bag\vc_x86runtime.msi"

(The * is a number, you'll have to find it for yourself, in a cmd prompt you can use: dir /s/b vc_x86runtime.msi)

Change the directory containing the vc_x86runtime.msi

I ran "vc_x86runtime.msi" and when the prompted for a CD was displayed I browsed to the install directory and selected the vc_x86runtime.msi.

I followed the prompts and installed the package. When it was finished, I went back to the Ad-aware install window and continued with the installation as normal.

#########

The installation continued normally, and I'm a happy Ad-aware user again.

Thanks, I remember this post, but did not have it bookmarked.

Sorry for the link I posted above that produced an error, that topic was only viewable by Lavasoft, so I edited my post above. The info was not useful anyways, no solution found ;)

Even though it's difficult, you can try Dion's method since it worked for him ;)

***

Also, look at this topic. Similar problem with Visual C++ runtime, but results in error "Lsdelete program not found."

There is an easier way.

The problem is the computer can't find the install package, and all you need to do is point it in the right direction.

Using winrar i opened the adaware installer went to data, then microsoft visual c++ runtime 9.0 then mfilebagide.dll, then bag, then vc_x86runtime.msi extracted it to my documents and then ran vc_x86runtime.msi. it should come up with network resources not found and then gives you the option to find it yourself. click browse go to my doucuments (or wherever you saved it) and double click on vc_x86runtime.msi, then click ok and the visual c++ should install.
Then run the adaware installer normally and all should be good.

Hope this works for you all. Edited by visitor

I do not understand the following paragraph:

"Using winrar i opened the adaware installer went to data, then microsoft visual c++ runtime 9.0 then mfilebagide.dll, then bag, then vc_x86runtime.msi extracted it to my documents and then ran vc_x86runtime.msi. it should come up with network resources not found and then gives you the option to find it yourself. click browse go to my doucuments (or wherever you saved it) and double click on vc_x86runtime.msi, then click ok and the visual c++ should install.
Then run the adaware installer normally and all should be good."

I don't have winrar. Will winzip 70 work? Please expand and elaborate the above paragraph for better understanding.
