Run across a minor issue while trying to install Visual Studion 2005 on Vista.
When installing he suddenly says he can not copy a certain file. you can retry or cancel. Cancel the installation and rerun the setup.exe with "Elevated Administrator Rights" . This should solve that issue. If this does not work try to install the latest version of Daemon tools because second time i tried the elevated administrator rights did not resolve the issue.
When I tried to run Visual Studio I get a warning. I recommend that you read what it has to say because there are numerous issues that may occur...
Do not forget to install the latest service pack either.
