The problem, then is I am unable to access any of the Visual studio files from CD Drive. I had to abort installation of VC++.

Sasdhulipala,
  The problem is that you are still using 16bit drivers for your CDROM - in AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS.
  Try renaming these files, rebooting, and let Windows 95 autodetect your CDROM and install the correct 32-bit support (which also enables long filenames, as opposed to the 8.3 format provided by 16 bit support).
  You may need to download your CDROM drivers from :

www.microsoft.com/hwtest

  ..if they're not included with the Win 95 CD.
