Setup.ini for VS.NET Architect

Hi. Very late last night, I was messing around with the setup.ini trying to get the install to work with win server 03. Having decided to revert back to Win2k, I can't get it installed. Now, when I run setup, I get sent to the pre-requisites link. When I click that, the entire installation stops. Here's the line I edited from setup.ini

[Baseline]
Dir=..\WCU
FileName=setup.exe

This is a copy from work that they no longer seem to have (the files are on my HD) , so I'm unable to look at the orginal file. Here's the complete top part plus a few of the key values:

[Setup]
Ver=7.0
Name=Visual Studio .NET
RegKey=VisualStudio
ProdName=Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect - English

[Baseline]
Dir=..\WCU
FileName=setup.exe

[Client]
Dir=.\setup
FileName=setup.exe
LANGCODE=ENU

[Servicing]
FileName=vsupdate.exe
Param=/mode=client /locale=1033 /vsui=1

[Server]
Dir=.
FileNameApp=RemoteComponents.hta
FileName=RemoteComponents.htm

[PrevProductIds]
{C6946B31-9A5B-11D4-9878-00105AA8A825}
{00600404-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}
{00600407-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}
{00600409-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}
{0060040C-6759-11D5-A54F-0090278A1BB8}
...




TIA

hmmm....See if you have any of the Visual Studio .NET 2003 folder in program files. If so, delete them and try running the setup. If no luck here, make a new windows user with admin priviliges and try running the setup by logging in using that user account.

Best, Nauman.

You are trying to install VS .NET on Windows Server 2003? Try inserting the Prerequisite cd, browse it and install the required components individually and then run the setup. BTW: What is the function of this ini file?

Best, Nauman.

well no, now I'm trying to install it onto windows 2000. I dont have access to the CDs right now..I've tried to install the pre-reqs, but it still takes me to that screen. I think this file just sets the base directory for the installation, it was working fine before i changed that filname value under [baseline].

I can bypass the pre-reqs completely by running setup on the command line using the /NO_BSLN_CHECK switch as explained here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/FoxPro/Q_20838260.html?query=bypass+visual+studio+requirements&clearTAFilter=true

in which case the installation stops with no message of any kind, making me think it has to be a problem with the value i put in the setup.ini..since this never happened before
