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

My solution was to remove the visual studio files that AVG had installed. Once I had cleaned that out, it installed fine and AVG still works.
Microsoft released RC version try out this
