Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 64 bit Prerequisites (x64): [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 64bit Prerequisites

"Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 64 bit Prerequisites (x64): [2] Error: Installation failed for component Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 64bit Prerequisites.."

When I plan to explore about Visual Studio 2010, I have downloaded the latest beta version available for developers. Than I run the setup in my Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit, it throws the above error with more error log information.
And than I searched for solution in Google, most of them mentioned remove the previous version of .NET framework or previous of Visual Studio from the system and try. But in my system there is no previous version of such software exist. Very few mentioned that remove VC ++ 9.0 Distributed from your system, when I tried that. After uninstalling VC ++ 9.0 and reinstall my Visual Studio 2010 Beta, VC ++ 9.0 gets automatically installed again.

Still no solution found.... researching for solution

Windows Vista themes are not applying properly...

I had a problem in getting my default Windows Vista themes back, due to some reason. When I look at my personalization option under control panel. I am getting this for Themes options.
After several analysis, I found that Themes are managed as separate service in Vista. When I checked the same in the service I found that Themes service is Disables/Stopped. Once I started the themes service in my laptop, I got all my default Vista style themes back working fine.

Hope this helps some...
