What a ridiculous ordeal. I was finally able to resolve this error by manually installing the webtoolsextensionsvs14.msi using msiexec and specifying a targetdir of c:\temp. For some reason is was trying to create temp install files directly in c:\

msiexec /a webtoolsextensionsvs14.msi /qb /l* log.txt SKIP_SETUP=1 TARGETDIR= c:\temp

Thank you for reporting this. I will try to help you resolve this and do have a few questions.

  1. Was this a clean installation or did you upgrade from a previous release such as RC?
  2. Have you tried to repair Visual Studio?
  3. Would you be able to share the installation logs? There should be two log files in your %temp% folder. The first file is an overall summary of the VS installation and should be have a name such as vs_professional_yyyymmddhhmmss.LOG. The second log is for the Web Tools package itself and should have a name such as vs_professional_yyyymmddhhmmss_nnn_WebToolsExtensionsVS14_1040.LOG

Thanks, Jacques
