When I try to install PTVS, it gives me this error and then quits:
"The Application Data Folder for Visual Studio could not be created."
I got the same error when I installed VS integrated and isolated shells (just before trying to install PTVS), but VS seemed to be okay with it. I'm running Win7 Professional.
Things I have tried:
- Enabling full control of "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\VisualStudio" for everyone, + adding my user account as the owner
- Enabling modify privileges of the VS Program Files folder
- Checking the value of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\AppData
- Running from CMD: "msiexec /a "PTVS 1.5 VS 2012.msi" (This resulted in a window that said it was successful but didn't seem to do anything.)
Thanks in advance for any help.
