Visual Studio 2005 Express Installation


New Member
I have a new laptop with Vista Home premium and .Net framework 3.5. I am trying to install Visual Studio 2005 Express edition on the system. At the time of installation i got message of compatibility issue for which I installed Visual Studio SP1 and Visual Studio SP1 for Vista. During installation of the former service pack I got the error message "Cannot Find one or more installed Components. Please reinstall the application." The window had the title "Microsoft Document Explorer". However at the last I still got the message installation successful. Same happens when I installed the later service pack. On executing the VC++ Editor, I got the same error message but the window title was VC++ 2005 Express edition. I think I have explained the issue properly. Please help me out.

Remove 2005 and install 2008. It is the newest and it works perfectly under Vista 64-bit.
