Apparently corrupt file prevents installation

P: n/a
I was attempting to install VS.Net 2002 Professional on
my XP-based system. Halfway through Disk 1, the program
froze and the error log recorded that it could not locate
the file

c:\Program Files\MS
VisualStudio.Net\Framework.SDK\Symbols\mscoprwks.p db.
Furthermore, the message in the system log read:

VS20pgui: ISetUpManager: GeyGlobalCustomProperty() failed
to find global prop in CFinishPage::GetGlobalProperty().

Please note that I had my virus protection and firewall
on when installing the software -- I din't get the
impression that these would be a problem for this type of
error.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer on this.

Numerous reports of any number/type of installation failures that were
corrected by simply disabling firewall and anti-virus software lead me to
suggest that you retry the installation with both your firewall and
anti-virus software disabled. If you're concerned this will leave your PC
vulnerable during the installation, physically disconnect the PC from the
network.
