Installation fails - VB 2005 express in XP pro x64 OS

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Alan Hoeschen, Jul 4, 2006.

  1. I've browsed through all the posts I can find, but I didn't find anything relating to this specific matter.

    I've been trying to install the visual studio .net 2005 express version of visual basic, both from Microsoft.com downloads and from a CD in the back of a VB 2005 Express book. All attempts fail. I'm selecting the x64 version of *.net 2005 express programs. They start what appears to be the installation process, but after a few minutes the process zips on through to "finish" and displays the message "not installed."

    I am unable to find any help on the Microsoft site. I'm running an Acer Ferrari 4000 with AMD Turion 64 CPU with standard equipment and Windows pro x64. Any suggestions or pointers to helpful sites/articles would be greatly appreciated.

    Along the same lines, I am finding that MS Office 2003 patches/updates won't install either.

    I've seen some posts about dual boot installation of 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine. Should I consider dual boot installation, conversely, of a 32-bit OS on an already existing 64-bit machine" If so, could somebody point me to some instructional material?

    Thanks so much for reading, and thanks for any help you can provide.
