Hey. I cant install bioshock because i need visual c++ 2005. However when I attempted to install it error 1935 appeared. After searching for solution i recently discovered that visual c++ isn't compatable with windows vista. Instead of waiting for servce pack number 1 i was wondering if anyone had a way round this situation. Anyone? (im using vista home premium if it helps).

Well, first off, I have BioShock, Visual Studio 2005, and 64-bit Windows Vista. To get Visual C++ or Visual Studio working on Vista, you need to download the service pack FOR VISUAL C++. It's not a Windows Service Pack, but they call it a service pack. It's a free download right from the Microsoft web site. Second, you don't need Visual C++ to install any game. If you bought BioShock at the store, it should just install like any other game. Personally, I got BioShock off of Steam, and it works 100% fine.

Yeah. It might have something to do with my vista being only 32-bit.

It still didn't work. Apparently it has something to do with the installer. The links here incase your confusing it with something else. Again error 1935.
