Enterprise Library 3.1 – error while installing – Error code 2869

Yup, there could be errors like the below image while installing “Enterprise Library May 2007.msi”.

The reason I found for this is, this enterprise library version checks for Visual studio 2005 is installed in the system, though Visual studio 2008 is installed.

I have just installed VS 2008 in my system and thus facing the same error.


1. Install Visual Studio 2005 and then install this “Enterprise Library May 2007.msi”.   –>> Don’t waste time doing this.

2. Download latest Enterprise library like 5.0 or 5.0 beta2 from codeplex  –>> http://entlib.codeplex.com/

The latest version of Enterprise library will install perfectly with out any installation errors.

Happy coding…

    3. Uncheck the AppBlock Software Factory and the Guidance Package, and it will install.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you
    know. The style and design look great though! Hope you
    get the problem solved soon. Thanks
