I need help installing Visual Studio 2005 on my new pc with vista home edition on it. This is VERY frustrating. I've search online and tried a few things but it's still doesn't seem to be working. Let me recap...
I tried installing it from the begining and I opened the DVD and right clicked on the setup installation file and selected Run as administrator. Also, my user is an administrator. This hung up forever on Microsoft Document Explorer. It never gave an error, just hung up on Current Component is Installing. So I closed it and installed it manually by running the file dexplorer.exe.
This worked and then when I ran the install package again and it installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. When it was done installing it came up with the message to install the 2 updates to work with vista. So I installed both those and continued with the installation.
NOW it's hung up on .NET Compact Framework 1.0 SP3. It's been on Current component is installing for about half an hour now (at least). Is this supposed to take this long? The installation isn't frozen cause the pictures on the right of are still changing.
Any help would be appreciated! I've been trying to do this for 4 hours now :(
