Default VS.NET 2003 Installation AKA @#$!&*

I'm having problems with the installation of VS.NET 2003

At around 60% of the first CD it sits on Generating Setup Script. I found a post on a site that suggested ending more than one instance of msiexec (with the lowest memory allocated). I did as the post on the site had suggested however I had to do it a couple of times and at the end of the second CD it again sat on another process at the end of the progress bar. I cannot quite remember the process. Again I attemped what was done on the first CD. Anyhow after attempting this several times, I finally killed the installation and found that VS.net was installed. However when I tried to run it, it sat on the splash screen. Then it would only come up when I actually stop the msiexec process. But that is a problem waiting to happen.

I have seen several things like downloading the latest security patches and service packs (I have them all). As well as clearing out your system temp folder. The only thing that I have not done was waiting for the celestial alignment of all the great planets in the solar system why offering a sacrifice to the Microsoft Gods.

Your help is graciously appreciated.

At this point, after several unsuccessful installation attempts, I would reinstall windows and then try the installation of VS.NET 2K3.

BTW, do you play MOH?

I actually did that a couple weeks ago. I blow away my partiton and reinstalled the XP OS. I have installed the previous versions with out any problem. However this one seems to be kicking my butt.

Yes I did play MOH. I am on COD now (when time permits) under the same nic.

Do you have an anti-virus or personal firewall that could interfere with the installation?

I do have norton Internet security running. However Norton does not notify me of any security issues when I am installing the program. And VS.NET does not give me any messages.

I have an antivirus running and it interfered with the installation so I had to turn it off. Also, after it was installed it prevents me from creating a new file so everytime I create a new aspx page it stops it. Sometimes with a message and sometimes without.
