Windows 7 Problem with visual studio 2005


New Member
WHen I try to install visual studio 2005 in windows it doesn't allow me to do it , Can someone help me with it?
Is it a trial or full version?

I have Visual Basic 6 installed on my XP machine and it works well.
I'm having a similar problem. The update to SP1 of Visual Studio 2005 will not install. Has anyone been able to resolve this?
I could not install Visual Studio 2005 in Windows 7 RC. With the Beta it worked fine.

The installation program says:

Some components must be installed in c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\ directory. Check that you have write permissions and enough space in that directory.

60 GB free disk space, and elevated installation...
I tried installing in a user created directory also. Didn't work either.

I did install VS 2008 first.
It appears all components of Visual Studio 8 were not removed.

I always use this freeware uninstaller

It runs the programs uninstaller first, then continues on and detects leftover file and registry entries and allows you to delete them as well.
