Error 1704

During deployment of a Team Foundation Server Policy I was greeted by the following error:

"Installation for Microsoft .NET Framework Service Pack 1 is currently suspended. You must undo the changes by that installation to continue. Do you want to undo those changes?"

While troubleshooting I found a utility provided by Chris Millard, called the Error 1704 Cleanup Utility. The utility removes any registry entries that cause the error. "Sometimes, when you try to (un)install a program packaged with Windows Installer, the routine fails. It leaves behind registry entries that give an Error 1704 - preventing further (un)installs of Windows Installer packaged programs."

The utility solved the problem nicely and I was able to install the policy. Good work Chris!
