I have searched and searched and cannot find any way to get VS2008 pro to install on 64bit Windows 7... I even upgraded from 7000 to 7077 in an attempt to get this to work... I can't believe VS2008 has not been tested by Microsoft so there must be a way to make this happen... My account is an Admin, I have UAC essentially turned off.... I have tried running setup under Vista SP2 emulation... setup dies shortly after accepting license with a dependency error... There is a reg hack in another location on this forum and I have tried that but still no luck... anybody got a fix or work arround for this?
