Start with Disc1, it will prompt you if it needs the Prerequisites (Disc3), the installation will prompt for Disc2/4 depending on what options you choose to install.

Discs 5,6 and 7 are the MSDN library. These contain all the documentation/references/samples that you might need. You should be prompted to install it at the end of the VS installation, or you can install it at a later date starting with Disc5.

If your new to C++ I would recommend installing the MSDN library which is probably seperate from the initial installation...that should help you if you have any problems along the way

Hi  martit01,

Simply start with Disc 1 of Vs 2003 .net installation. The screen will prompt u for next CDs along with CD numbers1. No need to worry. Microsoft has taken care of that. SO u will be prompted to insert CD2 or CD3 as per standard sequence. Go ahead.

Yeah It's as simple as Kali said! Just start with the first disk and follow the prompts/instructions as they come it will tell you when to insert what CD and you will know when to select the choice of options to install. Actually your choice will determine the sequence of your CD's so pay particular attention to this part and if you have enough disk space i will recommend the MSDN's too.

All the best
