Installing VisualC++ Learning Edition
Posted on 1997-08-03
I've recently purchased Microsoft Visual C++ Learning Edition V5.0
When I try and install it, it seems to go through all the file copying - the progress bar goes from 0 to 100 percent.
It then says installing DAO components or something similiar. Then it says updating the registry, this goes on for a min. or so and then disk activity stops and it never finishes updating the registry. If Ctrl-alt-del is pressed it says the install program is not responding.
If I close down the install program Visual C++ works but says it is an unauthorised copy, and the help feature doesn't work - which is a big problem.
Can anyone help ?
I have plenty of room on the target drive (for the visual C++ programs and stuff) and 10Mb more than is needed on the system drive ( C: ). Virtual memory is running from a drive with plenty free. I have 32Mb of memory.
