Well....... thats a bit of a vague topic, so I''ll explain my problem. I put windows XP on my system just to play with it for a bit. Everything was going great, WinXP is a damn good OS, much better than WinMe....... but Everything was going perfect until I went to install MSVC++ 6.0 It doesnt get past the first screen of the installer. It just crashes.. I get a box apologizing for the inconvenience.... no error given, meaning it leaves me right in the shnit. Has anyone else had this problem before, or has a solution to it? Im back on WinMe now and I hate it..... soooo unreliable and buggy.... so any help to get me back onto XP with MSVC++ would be hugely appreciated. Thx in advance.

Just to make it clear...... its the installer that crashes, not WinXP.... WinXP has never crashed on me yet ( run for 3 days straight ).

I had the same problem when trying to put on 3dsMax4, because the installer''s themselves arent compatible with WinXP.... but I fixed the max problem by updating C-Dilla, but I have no idea how to get around the MSVC++ installer problem.

If anyone can help.... it''ll be hugely appreciated.

Thx in advance.

Wait for the .Net if you want to use Xp from what I understand wich isn''t much Xp is geared tword the .net platform so while there might be a way around your problem Im sure further errors will occur. Sorry I know that this doesn''t answer your problem but I hope I enlighten you even if just a little

That''s not quite accurate. XP really doesn''t have anything to do with .NET. It doesn''t contain the .NET framework or any of the other components.

I agree that Me is shit But Xp is also shit. Use Win2k, this one is good.

I had great problems while trying to install MSVC++ 6.0, or most programs and such.

When I was half through the installation process, I got a blue screen of death.

When trying to install MSVC++ i got a BAD_POOL_CALLER error, and when I to install Serious Sam (hilarious game) I get another bsod: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA.

I exchanged my DVD against a cd, and guess what - it worked.

I think my DVD is faulty. I shall turn it in.
