Not enough disk space when installing VS.Net 2008

I changed my user and environmental varaible to point to my d drive.

When I tried to installing VS 2008 I keep getting not enough space on my C drive.

Is there a work around for this.

I don't have enough space on my C drive. I have enough on my D drive thats why I changes the Temp and Tmp variables to my d drive.

You need more space on C:.  The following link is for servers, but many of the tips will still apply.  And if necessary, take note of the "Junction Point" option.

I think leew forgot to provide the link.  He is a valued asset around here and I think I know the one he was going to provide.  Here is the one I believe he meant to include, but of course, I don't want to put any words in his mouth, so to speak:

Just make sure that you have good backups before starting.  Microsoft does not intend for the boot partition to be extended and so no product will guarantee results when you try to do this.  It does frequently work but you don't want to take that chance unless you can restore your data in case something goes wrong.
