Can't install the Outlook Add-in

SP

I'm trying to install the Add-in for Outlook. I have Outlook 2010 and I'm running Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit. Here's the error message:
Component Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86 and x64) has failed to install with the following error message:
"A failure occurred attempting to install the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86 and x64)."

The following components failed to install:
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86 and x64)

See the setup log file located at 'C:\Users\Shelley\AppData\Local\Temp\VSD4E45.tmp\install.log' for more information.

Let me know if you need the output from the log file. Thanks!!

Hello Shelley,

please download Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office from this URL:

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=3435

If the installer would also require Microsoft .NET Framework 4, please download it from there:

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851

After installing these two components and restarting your computer, run the Todoist for Outlook installer "as Administrator".


Best regards,
David

Thanks...I installed both downloads and the Add-in installed without a hitch. One correction...the link for visual studio went to the language pack rather than the actual tools download. You also need to install .NET first.

Thanks again! I'm really enjoying Todoist!!
