    Install of Motoblur "Media Link" aborts

    I'm a new Atrix owner. Every time I hook it to the computer it tries to install the Media Link software that allows me access to the phone's contents through the computer. But every time, it aborts, with this error message:

    "The installation of VC Redist 2005 Sp1(Vista or later) has failed. Setup will now exit."

    I have VC Redist 2005 Sp1 (whatever the F that is) installed. I've checked. I've even done a fresh install. But I keep getting the same error.

    It's driving me nuts. Any ideas?

    Hi, welcome to the forums!

    Have you possibly tried downloading the latest full version of Media Link from here: http://www.motorola.com/Consumers/US...-Version-US-EN

    I
    've had an issue or two (though not your same one) when trying to install from the phone.

    Same Error Here Too ...

    Nothing really on the web about this error. Downloaded latest Motorola Media Link, try to install but getting error message, "The installation of VC Redist 2005 Sp1 (Vista or later) has failed. Setup will now exit."

    Install log isn't too informative either.

    Any one else see and solve this?

    Paul
