i am unable to install visual studio 2008 from a DVD. If i put in the DVD my computer hangs and when i check the CPU usage it goes up to 50% and stays there and i cant even eject the DVD. my only option is to restart the computer the hard way. i just reinstalled windows xp pro and installed the drivers. is it possible there is a driver conflict somewhere. Help required asap as i have to start working on a project

Kind regards

Did you burn your own dvd like from here?

If you are after one particular part say Visual C++ have you tried downloading that individual component?

Has any other software failed to install?

Are you running a firewall or antivirus?


I borrowed the CD from the university and i burnt a copy for myself before i formatted my computer. i had it installed previously. i am able to install other applications except the visual studio. i have tried installing it on my friends computer and the DVD works there. i require most of the components such as the framework, compact sql server. i have the firewall on but i dont have an anti
virus running

kind regards
