Error 2753. The File is not marked for installation.


Okay, I have just downloaded and tried to install the Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 executable package 13_07. And, like so many others, I have also received the infamous error "Error 2753. The File "agent.exe.6ED28686_7B19_420C_B255_5B6C1BD2C705" is not marked for installation." I have read so many forums on how to get past this, but still no luck. Here is what I have done thus far.

First, installing this on Windows 7 Professional and I have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate

I have removed all Flexera software, there is nothing even related to Installshield on my computer.

I have uninstalled all prior attempts at the Crystal Reposts installations

I have removed the Crystal Reports folder in program files

I have cleared my cache

I have checked the registry for errors

I have rebooted my machine and ran the .exe installation with no other Windows programs open

This is all of the information I found on this and other forums, but I still have had no luck. I have seen this error on forums from 3 years ago and find it hard to believe it is still not fixed.

I would appreciate any information.

Thank you in advance.
