Did recent Win 2000 updates cause VS .NET 2003 to re-install itself?

P: n/a
I have a multiboot system with VS .NET 2002 Pro and VS .NET 2003 Pro
installed in separate bootable systems.
I installed VS .NET 2003 on 21 August 2003, but have used mostly VS .NET
2002 since then.
When I get Office 2003 and VSTO, then I'll start using VS .NET 2003.

Today, I had a reason to try upgrading a VB 6 project to VS .NET 2003, so I
rebooted to the OS with VS .NET 2003.
I double clicked the .VBP file and VB 6 started, but so did an installation
of VS .NET 2003.
Indeed, I was even asked to insert disk 1 of the installation set.

What causes this re-installation?
How can I avoid this?
