PostPosted: Installing and Registering Visual Studio Express Editions, Trouble with instanlation Top

I am trying to install visuall basic express edition on my Dell Latitude, it has all the tech specs nescary for the instalation and plenty of memory. the instalation apears to go fine until it finishes and then i am unable to find a run the files i now have on my hard drive. i am wondering what i am doing wrong. the only thing i can see that might possibly be a problem is that i have microsoft SQL server on this computer, but i am not sure if i can do anything about that since a buisness software i use uses it. Please let me know if i am doing something wrong, or if i am just not able to have Visual Basic Express Edition on my computer. Thanks alot

There should not be a problem installing the system on the same machine as SQL Server as the express products install the sql express system to an named instance (.\SQLEXPRESS). When you do install the system you will find that the application does not create a folder unde the programs list in the start menu... it just creates an icon under the main programs list. I would check to make sure that you have a directory under your program files directory on you C Drive.

If there where any problems with the install you should find some log files under a visual studio directory in your program files, Also you might want to check you event log for any errors.

Thank you all for all of your concern with my issue, what it turned out had happened was that the first atempt i made at installing their was an eror with the autoinstall and it did not start up after i had clicked restart now and restarted my computer, and then the second time was a download error so that i had an errored setup system period. so what i thought was connected to sql server turned out to do more with a faulty setup system. and the third time was the charm. thanks for your help!!
