Unable to install .NET

P: n/a
I have a new computer that has a new instalation of XP Pro then a new install
of XP Office then a new XP SP2 install.
I just downloaded EN_VS.NET_ENT_DEV_FULL.exe into c:\Temp and extracted it
into c:\Temp\Setup.
The first time I I double clicked SETUP.EXE in c:\Temp\Setup, I got the
Visual Studio.NET Setup Window. I selected One then it asked if I wanted to
install IIS. I elected to do that, then when the browser window came up I
changed my mind and closed it.
Now when I double click SETUP.EXE in c:\Temp\Setup the "Setup is starting,
checking infromation for system requirements" message comes up, then I get
"Setup was unable to copy the file C:\Temp\Setup to your temporary directory.
Please make sure that this file exists and rerun setup."
It seems I need to undo something but I don't kow what it is.
Thanks for you help.

I rebooted and was able to get past that point.
Now it says "Please insert Windows Component Update disk for Visual
Studio.NET now." It defaults to the C:\Temp\Setup directory. When I click
OK it says I have inserted the wrong disk.
Should I just download the disk images, burn cd's and install from there or
will this work?

Thanks

Windows Component Update is a separate 'CD' - you need to download it, extract it and when asked for
it, browse to the relevant folder.

Thanks for the info. I tried to find the Windows Component Update for .NET
but all I could find was a help page for installation problems. Maybe it's
in the Universial Subscription.
If you have seen it can you send me a link?
I have the download rights so id and password will not be an issue when it
asks for it.
Thanks
