Install Microsoft Visual Studio on Virtual PC
Posted on 2010-09-04
So I have a very old version of Microsoft Visual Studio from many years ago when I worked for a development company. I'd like to pull it out and knock the dust off but it naturally isn't compatible with Vista. I'd like to install it on a Virtual PC 2007 Console I have, but when I try to run the setup from the virtual pc I get these errors:
Setup Error 530
This is an invalid command line option:
The next screen says:
Setup - Usage
setup [/A] [/G filename] [/Q[0|1|T]] [/R] [/U[A]] [/X filename] [/Y]
/A Administrator mode
/G filename Generate logfile of installation activity
/Q[0|1|T] Quiet install mode (0 shows exit, 1 hides exit, T hides all display)
/R Reinstall the application
/U[A] Uninstall the application but leave shared components (/UA to remove all)
/X filename Set Network Log Location for tracking install instances
/Y Install without copying files
I attempted the install by clicking the Setup.exe file in the main folder of the installation CD.
Maybe some type of command line install would work better?
Maybe it's not even possible to install this on this Virtual PC?
