I wanted to install VS2003 and VS2005 to a new workstation.
I have install visual studio .net 2003 without any errors and the
prerequisites cd. When i try to run the visual studio 2003 i got the message
"xml parsing error     file://d:.....\context.xml(0,0):XML error c00ce508 an
invalid character was found in text content [no source]"
ANOTHER problem is that when i try to File -> New ->project -> visual
basic ->windows application i got an error message
Microsoft Development Environment:   microsoft JScript compilation error
Syntax error    />

I havn't installed vs2005 yet at this point.

This reminds me of an error that a colleague had when installing his copy.  Have you verified that you have a TEMP environment variable declared and that the path that this points to sits on a volume with plenty of free space?

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Common\IDE\HTML\XMLLinks\1033\context.xml

This is the location of the file mentioned in your error message on my system.

This is the contents of that file (reproduced here solely for purposes of diagnosis, may not be recopied or retransmitted):

<?xml version='1.0' encoding="utf-8" ?>
<DynamicHelp xmlns="http://microsoft.com/vstudio/tbd/vsdh.xsd">
  <Preference AttrName="Locale" AttrValue="kbEnglish"/>
  <LINKGROUP ID="help" Title="Help" Priority="500">
    <GLYPH Collapsed="1" Expanded="2" />
  </LINKGROUP>
  <LINKGROUP ID="actions" Title="Actions" Priority="1000">

  </LINKGROUP>
  <LINKGROUP ID="GettingStarted" Title="Getting Started" Priority="300">
    <GLYPH Collapsed="1" Expanded="2" />
  </LINKGROUP>
</DynamicHelp>

Your version of the file should be in your Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2003 directory hierarchy in a location at a similar depth to mine.  Examine it and see if it looks strange.

On XP, go to Control Panel, open the System icon, click on the Advanced tab, then click on the Environment Variables button.  Under System Variables, TEMP and TMP should be defined; on my system, both point to C:\WINDOWS\TEMP.

When you open the new question, be sure to include as much of the error as possible, hopefully this info will include the file name where the JScript resides.  Glad I've helped so far.
