visual studio 2008 and 2010 (vs 2008 and 2010 installation setup problem)
problem of windows xp sp 2 error message (when windows 7 platform used)
my problem when installing vs2008 or vs2010 from a iso file (visual studio 2008 or 2010 installation) always at the beginning of the setup, windows xp sp 2 update or a error message like go.microsoft.com/fwlink has appeared.
then i have update my windows 7 ultimate 32 bit x86 platform with all update packs from windows update interface, but then again and again i have encountered in the same error windows many times. then the solution below has been useful for me and without any error, the setup process has been completed succesfully.
please try this
click start menu and type cmd and then press enter.
when opening the black window, type if ypur cd drive letter e:, e:\setup\setup.exe
this way is succesful for me, maybe for you
