visual studio update on winserver2003

P: n/a
Hi fellows,

I am experiencing a problem while I try to update Visual Studio.NET 2003
on Windows Server 2003.

It tells me tha it is impossibile to connect to the update site. It
doesn't matter if I do it from the Visual Studio menu or from the
windows "add/remove applications" control panel applet.

I suspect it is due to the enhanced protection for Internet Explorer...
I do not want to disable it, I hope there's a way to "trust" Visual
Studio update site...

Windows Update works well...

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Andrea

Do you mean that you are trying to use the VS IDE Help->Check for Updates
menu option?

Yes, I just tried it myself. I too get an error:

"Visual Studio 2003 Encountered errors when attempting to download required
files.."

I've already uninstalled the advanced IE protection on my Win2003 Server.

That option usually doesn't work in Visual Studio no matter what OS you are
on.

The Visual Studfio menu option Help>Check for updates doesn't work on any
OS, as the link below details.

Just get your Framework 1.0 or 1.1 patches using either Windows Update or go
to msdn.microsoft.com and go to the downloads pages.
