Can't Install VS.NET

I am trying to install VS.NET Professional at work, and it doesn't seem to want to cooperate.  It goes through the entire setup process I am pretty sure, but then, all of a sudden, it says:

"User Cancelled Setup
Setup has been cancelled.  All files copied by setup to the machine will be removed."

I know I didn't click Cancel...and I tried it again, just in case, and I got the same message.  Anyone know anything about this or why it is happening?

It seems you don't have enough resources.. especially ram.. recommended 128 but I recommend 256+ also check that you have over 2gb of free HDD space.
I had the same problem (similar with an error) when i tried to install on a 128 mb P4 1.6 ghz machine.. when I upgraded it worked fine..

Resources shouldnt be a problem.  It has 300+ MB of RAM with 19+ GB available HDD space.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Yes, the installation first prompted me to do all the necessary component updates (Win2k SP2, FPSE, and security updates) and I then proceeded with the VS.NET installation.  Everything seems to go fine...the installation runs for a long time, progress shows its working, and then at the end it tells me that I cancelled it, which I most certainly did not.

Only solution I know of is to copy the contents of the cd's to your filesystem

Use xcopy <source> <destination> /h /y /e /s /v.

I copied the CD to my local disk and ran setup from there...this time it did complete but it said that setup encountered errors, and the error log mentioned two somewhat obscure messages.  I closed that window, unfortunately, but I will come back with the messages after I try again here in a bit.

the sharing of wwwroot didnt change anything.  the other issues mentioned seem to involved having a BETA installed previously, which this machine did not.  i'm running out of ideas...and patience.

Two solutions I found for those error messages in newsgroups (took a while though):

-----------

Here is the solution: We were running Office 2000 on the desktop, when we
uninstalled Beta2, it appears it uninstalled some of the updated MDAC as
well. We never noticed that the office applications no longer worked. We ran
"Repair" for Office 2000, and then ran setup for VS .Net.

This time around the install for .Net went smoothly.

In retrospect, I think we had two different problems with the installation.

1) The MY Documents folder was targeting a network drive, where the user was
not able to share a folder for the projects during the installation.
        Solution: Ensure the path for the My Documents folder is pointed to
a location where the user will be able to create a folder and share it out.

2) When we uninstalled Beta2, we never noticed that our Office 2000
installation was no longer working. (Outlook worked, but nothing else).
        Solution: Repair or re-install Office 2000 after removing beta2, and
or the .Net Framework SDK.


I hope this helps everyone.

---------------

I was able to solve this problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled IIS on my
machine to restore the default settings. After that setup ran fine.

No go...I tried repairing, uninstalling/reinstalling Office, uninstalling/reinstalling Framework and Component Updates.  I keep getting the same two messages in the error log.  This sucks.

It seems that during the installation there an opened application that is using a MDAC 2.6 component, so this opened component is forcing the MDAC 2.7 upgrade process to fail with the error 1223 ERROR_CANCELLED The user cancelled Setup.

I finally called MS and talked to a tech.  The following steps were taken to install VS.NET:

1) Run Components Update
2) xcopy all 4 CDs to a single folder in root drive, overwriting all files when prompted
3) ensure Temp folder is clear prior to running setup
4) run msconfig to ensure all services other than Windows Installer are running upon reboot prior to installation
5) ensure you are logged in as Administrator, not just user with Admin rights


All these things in place, the setup seemed to then run fine.
