    Have you tried to install it again? The error seems to indicate that a file is in use.

    I removed the "Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop" folder from C:\Windows\assembly\GAC and also the tmp folder.
    The installation now is progressing. I will update the thread if it runs into any error or if that finishes installing successfully.

    The issue was resolved after following the steps.
    Navigate to C:\Windows\assembly\GAC
    Delete folder Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop

    Navigate to C:\Windows\assembly
    delete folder tmp

    Thank you. :)
