Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate fails to install on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

I’m trying to install Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, but continues to fail.

I tried installing the .Net Framework 4 by itself, but the installer returns with the same error code.

The log file follows this message.

Thanks!
Rory
