Server 2008 R2 Installation problem

Installing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio Express is become really pain. while installing getting the following error.

Rule "Previous releases of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008" failed.

A previous release of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 is installed on this computer. Upgrade Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 to the SP1 before installing SQL Server 2008. Visual Studio SP1 can be found at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=159627.


As many suggestion found on google , ihave installed sp1, and also changed the following key value in registry, then also it does not work.

Even if i change
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DevDiv\VNS\Servicing\9.0\EXP\1033]
"Install"=dword:00000001
"InstallerType"="MSI"
"SP"=dword:00000001
"SPIndex"=dword:00000001
"SPName"="SP1"

What would be the solution.?
