Seems that Windows is running what is defined in App Paths for "setup.exe"
Judging by the error that you are getting, Windows is running
<system32>\setup.exe instead of the setup.exe from the CD.

Open regedit and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\App
Paths\Setup.exe

Double click on the default value and clear the value data. It should now
be blank. This should clear up your problem and allow you to install VS.

Hope this helps.
