How can I install Visual Studio 2003 on Windows 2003 Server 64 bit edition?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Ertugrul Uysal, Oct 17, 2005.

  1. When I run setup.exe from the installation disk I get the following error
    "setup.exe is not a valid win32 application". Probably the installer is a 16
    bit application but I read it is possible to run Visual Studio 2003 on
    Windows 2003 Server x64. I can not find out how to install it.
    (Actually the same is true for Office 2003 and probably others)
    Could anyone tell me what is wrong?

  2. There has been reported conflicts installing either Microsoft Office XP or
    2003 on Windows XP Professional x64. The problem it seems is as a result of
    a flaw in Windows Installer 3.1. Here is a link to the update to resolve the
    problem:

  4. I think my problem was with the CDROM driver. I was able to do the
    installations over the network. I've installed Windows using the same
    CDROM, so probably this was not a hardware problem.
