Installing Dev Studio .NET

Recommended Posts

This is the first time in my life i have problems installing software (if we forget about old DOS games of course! =O)). I couldn''t install DevStudio .Net. I have autorun disabled, so i executed setup.exe. Then a dialog opens and tells me i need to install some things first. I install them all (the win98 ones), exept for the last one the one "native debugging blahblahblah...". The button doesnt work. And I never get a button te install the real thing... whats wrong? Thanks a lot... Just in case... I have Developers Studio 6.0 with the service pack 5 and the processor pack installed Alejandro Martínez

What OS are you running? VS NET only runs on the latest NT kernel based operating systems, ie NT4/2K/XP

double click =O)

I currently have win98 installed. Because XP self destructed twise in the first 2 months.

Does .NET only work on NT based OSs?

Is it worth installing .NET, if i only want to go on programming "oldstyle"?

Thanks a lot !!!

The IDE is great, IMO, although a lot of people would disagree with me. I could never go back to vs6 now.

Actually, it converts them first to the new format, and then it compiles them. It''s not an issue if its just your own old projects, but if you are trying to keep in sync with other people''s code distributed as VC++6.0 projects, it can be a bit of a pain.

For a product that costs anywhere from $549 to $2,499, it sure is odd that you wouldn''t investigate such a thing as system requirements.

Where you are from, you CAN buy this software - you can buy this software everywhere you can buy a computer.

Stop bullshitting us around - you are just a smal thief, thats all.
