PostPosted: Installing and Registering Visual Studio Express Editions, Trouble Installing On XP Top

I was able to install Visual C++ Express edition on my home computer which is Windows 2000. At work, on a Windows XP SP 2, I have a problem installing. When I run setup, I get to a window that says:

The following items are being downloaded and installed.....

- Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0

- Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition

The status bar, shows no progress and the status field say's: Re-Establishing connection with servers (attempt 1 of 5). It goes through 5 attempts and eventually goes to an error page after the 5th attempt. The error window says: ENU has encountered a problem during setup. Setup did not complete successfully.

If I click on "what did the report contain", then a page provides a cryptic error signiture. On the error page, I click on "send report" button. Presumably, something is sent to Microsoft.

Would love to hear ideas on how I can get this going on my XP machine.

could be the firewall blocking the connection to the servers, are you able to pretty much copy the report in here to see if I/anyone else can see where the problem is

It looks like you are using the web installer, I have seen problems with this dropping out. My suggestion is to try the manual download of the iso images and cut your own cd of the install package. This will allow you to install it as many times as you like, also when using the cd install (manual) you do not have to activate and register the product. You will recieve the nag screen for a while but it does stop.
