Installing VB.net

P: n/a
I am currently using VB 4.0 with WindowsXP Home Edition and would like to
continue to use it and also use Visual Basic.net

The help file states that "Windows XP Home Edition provides limited
functionality. Creating Web applications or XML Web services is not
supported when using Windows XP Home Edition." I am not interested in Web
applications or XML Web services.

When I run Setup I get the Visual Studio.NET Setup screen with "1 Visual
Studio.Net Prerequisites" as the only option available. When I click this
option I get a dialog box which reads

"Setup has detected that another program requires the computer to reboot. Yo
must reboot the computer before installing Visual Studio.NET Prerequisites.
Once the systed reboots, you need to restart setup. Click OK to reboot"

When I reboot the procedure repeats and I have the same problem repeated.

Can anyone help me?

This group is primarily for "classic" VB (5, 6). You should post your question
on a group with "dotnet" in its name.
