View Full Version : MS Visual Studio 6 - Doesn't Install

20-08-2004, 07:20 PM
I recently installed the above mentioned program on my computer and had just chosen the minimal install as i was low on harddrive space.

After looking through the help files and playing about with the tutorials and such it asked me to insert a certian control thingy for some database or such. after looking in the components list I couldnt find it - of course. I thought it must be due to my minimal install that it wasnt included so i decided to add some other stuff to see if it would work.

so i put the CD in and choose "modify installed components" or such and after clicking away it says "looking for installed components" and then freezes.

so i quit it through task manager and it said "MS VS 6 setup has failed. please go to www.microsoft.com/msdn" for more Info.

I went there and it told me to delete some registry keys, empty my Temp folder and delete the installed files.

I tried this and the installer still stops at the same place.

Anyone got any ideas?
