SSDT installation issue (Failed to execute EXE package.)

I am having an issue with the SSDT installation for VS2017.

I have ran the installer three times, once basic, once following VS update and the last following some minor windows updates.

All 3 times the logs stumble at the same point, anyone know what this .exe it is trying to run is (I am running the installer with Admin...). I read somewhere for a similar error that it might be the SDK but I am able to run this locally, any nice workarounds to having this installed out there?

The answer from Nick is very helpful, but I still failed at SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /repair with the same error Error 0x800703e9: Failed to execute EXE package..

Then I tried it with a very straightforward way: (Disable UserAccountControl first)

  1. copy SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe to c:\temp and execute SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /layout to download a local copy of the bundle.
  2. open C:\temp\redist and double click NDP461-KB3102438-Web.exe
  3. open C:\temp\payload and double click vsta_setup.exe
  4. repeat to install others...


This is the most likely link I came to when I got the same message in my log:

So I'll document my findings here.

In my start menu I had Visual Studio 2017 (SSDT). It ran OK but didn't have any BI projects available

This is what I did from an Administrator elevated command prompt:

  1. Copied SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe into C:\temp (rather than a user specific download folder which the admin user may not have access to)
  2. Ran SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /layout to pre-download support and redist files (this was after a required restart)
  3. Ran SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /repair to try and repair the install. It gave me a button Repair that I clicked.
  4. Ran SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /repair again. Selected Modify. Noted that only SQL Server Database was ticked, but none of the others (SSAS, SSIS, SSRS)
  5. Ticked SQL Server Analysis Services and pressed Modify. It proceeded to do it. Got stuck at 50% for a few minutes but eventually worked
  6. Repeated for SQL Server Reporting Services and SQL Server Integration Services

After this, when I reran VS2017, it had the BI projects and allowed me to create a 1400 SSAS solution


Previous failed installations left VS2017 recognising that the installation was present in Visual Studio Installer. I removed the installation, restarted and the re-install was successful...


For SSDT for VS2018, Version 15.5.2 same failed at execute exe. only do 1. SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /layout 2. SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /repair (tick SSAS/SSRS/SSIS based on your requirement)

and this already works. I think MS also do some job for this.


EDIT: This might not be relevant any more since SSDT 15.8.2 is now out.


In my case, I was on VS 2017 15.7.2 and I can't complete the installation in SSDT 15.6. What I did was to install SSDT 2017 15.7.0 and it worked.

Make sure to uninstall previous SSDT installations via the VS installer or Control Panel also the Microsoft Reporting Services Projects and Microsoft Aanalysis Services Projects extensions first if you have them before launching the installer.


Edit: I think my Python issue is a subset of Jeff Leach's comment about repairing Visual Studio. So, I would probably look at any Visual Studio errors you had while installing and try and fix them before trying to install SSDT. For the time being I would NOT update Visual Studio or its installer to the newest versions (15.7 and 1.16) because of known bugs with SSDT 2017. They are working on a fix that will be out with 15.7.2 but it's not out yet.

I found that Daniel's method worked, but I had to install Python manually to be successful.

After successfully installing the .msis in the payload directory I tried to install the Analysis Services VSIX and I wasn't successful because the installer couldn't install Python 3.6.3. I found the page at the bottom and did the following to successfully install the Analysis, Integration, and Reporting VSIXs.

  1. Check error logs and find what version of Python is the problem.
  2. Manually download and install the proper Python version (my logs said 3.6.3). The name of the executable was python-3.6.3-amd64.exe and I got it from https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.6.3/python-3.6.3-amd64.exe
  3. Uninstall SSDT extensions from within Visual Studio. I uninstalled all of my previously unsuccessful VSIXs.
  4. Manually install VSIXs. This worked out for me and I am able to use all of the SSDT functionality!

Just to do control testing, I installed Reporting Services with the /repair option and was successful. I think the main issue was the Python error. I think if I would've had Python installed everything would've gone smoothly. This is very frustrating because I got this same Python "error" when first installing Visual Studio 2017 (15.6.7)...expect the "error" was just a caution and didn't prevent me from using Visual Studio. But somehow it prevented the install of SSDT 2017.

I hope none of y'all have to go through this like I did today at work!

I had the same error 0x800703e9 installing SSDT with the SSRS option checked. After trying some of the previous good suggestions unsuccessfully, including using the /layout option to download the package locally, I found that the Visual Studio installer portion of the package needed a reboot to finish. After the reboot, I was able to run Microsoft.DataTools.ReportingServices.VSIX successfully.


I have a similar problem with different error code, but the same

"Failed to execute EXE package problem".

I tried all the solution above to no avail. But, after creating an installation layout out of SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe and then trying to execute vsta_setup.exe as suggested by Daniel. I get to the underlying error message, it's has something to do with Android NDK believe it or not, and since I'm from Syria, any change to these packages should be done through a VPN connection. So the solution was to run Visual Studio 2017 installation layout, remove all these ugly android packages "Android SDKs and NDKs and even the emulators, yes, a nuclear solution since I don't have a VPN connection", and then run SSDT-Setup-ENU.exe /repair. Everything worked just fine. I hope this might save someone's time after it wasted mine.


My installation came also with a error. I tried the several things mentioned above, but it didn't help. So I was guessing that it could be the disk space of my VirtualBox VM. I made the C: drive bigger and that was the trick. SSDT requiere: Hard disk space: up to 130 GB of available space, depending on features installed; typical installations require 20-50 GB of free space.

I have Visual Studio 2019 installed and was attempting to add SSDT to VS 2019. I have not tried adding to SSDT to a new instance of VS 2017 yet. No resolution being proposed. Some of the references pertain to older releases.
