How to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition?

Hi!
I have a copy (legal copy! bought by my employer) of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition - ENU,
Version=800.100.00, which came in one .exe file. I expanded this file and got all the files, including setup.sdb, located in Setup folder.
How to run this file? How to start the installation process?
I have a registration number as well.
Thanks!

Do you think my question was a joke? There's NO setup.exe.
All I have is 'setup.sdb', which a text file. When opened it in notepad, it starts with the following lines:

[Version]
Signature = "$Windows NT$"
Provider="Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition - ENU"
Version=800.100.00
NullString=Null String
Lang=1033

No, i don't think that, but is not polite to describe your problem in a couple of lines and expect the expert to look on his crystal ball. If you wan't help, be polite, because we are not employees of this site.

If I had 'setup.exe', and have a problem running it, I would say so. Instead, I described the problem precisely: I have 'setup.db' file and don't know how to run it, and how to perform the installation.
I politely asked the question, and got instead a pseudo-answer to "double-click setup.exe". Who's professional here?
I repeat my question: Do you know how to run 'setup.sdb' file and perform installation?
Thank you!

How could I guess that you don't have the setup.exe? There are lots of questions like this, and mostly just need an answer like that. That's how I solved much of the 3000+ questions in my record.

I don't know why you don't have the setup.exe, you should. the sdb file contains the product key, or maybe not, and you have to specify (look how to at: http://kbalertz.com/908452/Contents-Microsoft-Visual-Studio-Setup-Issues-Readme.aspx), but you need the setup.exe anyway.

Sorry 'jaime_olivares' - I should have waited a few minutes before responding. Usually it helps.
I think you're right - there should a setup.exe (that's how I run hundreds of installations before).
I just thought that Microsoft have developed something new to install the program (they are good in deceiving people).
Anyway - points to you.
Thanks!
