I recently purchased a new netbook. I down loaded the HTC Sync manager. When I attempted to install the software I got a pop up box that said "The files for installation requirement Microsoft VC Redist 2005 KB 973544(x86) could not be found. The installation will now stop. This is probably due to a failed, or cancelled download.,
I spoke to HTC on the phone for several minutes, and they concluded it was an issue with the netbook. I chatted with Acer, who could not help me, but suggested that I contact their "for a fee" help line.
I have downloaded the above referenced C++ software from Microsoft, and still get the same pop up box.

Hey Daveb, sorry to hear about the frustration you’re having
with getting your phone synced with your new Acer Netbook! To better help you

window should appear named System Properties displaying various information
about your netbook. On this screen, what Service Pack is reported to be
