You need to Download an offline Installer. It is good because it is an Iso , so you will have everything that you need. But if you download and install from the Internet , you might lose connection and some files that are needed to install Vs might not be downloaded as in your case. http://www.microsoft.com/express/Downloads/Download-2010.aspx
