    Cant install visual studio .net!!

    I have finally got visual studio .NET and went to install it asap, After getting through the first couple of disks with ease it would not install past the 3rd disk because of a file called adodb.dll . The error was something to do with not having write permisions for that directory, I'll post the exact error message later...

    Anyway I am on windows XP and was using a adminstration account to install it, so I dont know where the problem lies. Has anyone else had any troubles like this?? I am stuck for ideas now

    oh also, you might have to login using the actual "Administrator" account, not just an account with so-called administrator privelages.

    I dont have it on me atm, I'm at work, IT was something about writing adodb.dll and asked me to check if I had permission. I'll post it in full later when I get home

    You need XP Pro to install it. Thats probably your problem.

    I have VS studio .NET (Academic) at home- works fine. You do not need to have XP - W2K will work.

    Why don't you download Microsoft .NET Framework Software Development Kit ? From Microsoft- its free

    Either you don't have the necessary adodb.dll file on your hard drive (or it's in the wrong folder), or you need to find the folder that has the adodb.dll in it, right click (then go to properties), and change it so it can "write permissions."

    If you don't have adodb.dll on your hard drive, try searching for it on google.com. You may be able to download it off the net.

    Aran Elus, you're problem might just be because you need an nt operating system to run vs.net.

    XP pro and home are both based on nt technology. The other two types are windows 2000 and windows NT.

    Of course there could be another problem, but that's might guess from the info you provided. If that's not the case, you have to call microsoft, which charges you for help (but they might give you a free call, always ask the operator there for 1 free service call to their help desk department).
