I am trying to install Turgo Delphi 2006 on a new PC I bought, preinstalled with Windows Vista
It fails during prereq installation of .net 1.1
I read that .net 2.0 is already installed on Windows Vista
Is there some incompatibility ?
A work around ?
Thanks

I have succesfully made installation of Turbo Delphi 2006 on Vista. I did the following installation sequence:

1) Extract prereqs.zip to a local directory
2) Start and install \dotNETRedist\dotnetfx.exe (accept all standard settings)
3) Start and install \dotNETSDK\setup.exe (accept all standard settings)
4) Start and install \dotNETJSharp\vjredist.exe (accept all standard settings)
5) Start and install \MSXML\msxml.msi (accept all standard settings)
6) Install Turbo Delphi

I don't know if this direct links will work:
http://altd.borland.com/download/bds/bds_2006_trial/english/arch/disk2/prereqs.zip

I had to fill in a form first.
If it doesn't work go to
http://www.codegear.com/Downloads/TrialandFreeVersions/Turbo/tabid/144/Default.aspx
click on the upper Turbo Delphi, fill in form then you can download it.

Possibly you should also register on the site first.

I found the problem
I did previously create a file msiexec.exe.config but now I deleted it and I could install .net 1.1
