    Can't Install VC++ 6.0 on XP


    When I try to install MS VC++ 6.0 on Win XP, the install program fails and apologises for the inconvenience. I have a Intel Pentium 4 & XP Pro.

    Anyone know this problem & know how I can get around it?

    I seem to have found it myself. I had to run the setup program in Windows 95 compatibility mode.

    The install program ran, but then claimed to have failed right at the end. Not very impressive, however, VC++ seems to run OK & compiles my programs.
