until two days ago, I worked with SQL Server 2008 R2 and related BIDS installation without any problems. Now, when I run BIDS 2008 R2 I've an error about one or more missing components and the error message suggests to reinstall the application. I've tried more times to remove and reinstall before the all SQL Server client objects, included BIDS, and then also the entire SQL Server setup. The error is changed: "Upgrade Failed due to the following Error. The error code is: -2147467259. Message: error not specified." BIDS 2008 R2 is the only component that cannot be installed.
I'm working on my machine having Windows 7 64-bit and .NET Framework vers. 4.5.1.
After more attempts, I'd like to have any helps/suggests to solve this issue, please.
P.S.: Likely inside the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 folder any objects could be missing or corrupted. Is it possible to repair this specific path with a separate setup file from SQL Server setup?

You may rename C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0 .old and re-try the installation.
If it fails, please upload the current logs in the %programfiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\YYYYMMDD_hhmmss folder to your OneDrive and share the link.
