My Attempt To Install SSMS on Citrix….Fail

I had a goal in mind:  install SSMS on Citrix so that if I had to look at one of my SQL servers, I would not need to remote desktop into my desktop or the server itself, in case I needed to look at multiple servers.  I wanted just to set up SSMS on the Citrix server as an application so that I could quickly assess problems and avoid redecorating my three monitors when the icons get squished down into one RDP session.

 I downloaded the 2008 R2 SSMS installer from Microsoft instead of using my media.  After running the installer, I get the following error:

SSMS Install Error

 When I run Windows Update, there are no updates available for Visual Studio. 
 
Has anyone seen this before?  My Citrix administrator does not know how to proceed.  I have never seen this before.  Any ideas?
 
I will blog the solution tomorrow!  Enjoy!
