Vista CTP 5308 - No vs 2003 Either

My installation of Visual Studio 2003 Enterprise Architect doesn’t run through… I tried it twice and there’s a point where the current action is shown as “Removing registry entries” or something very similar to that, and that’s where suddenly some msiexec process starts gobbling up a lot of CPU and never terminates. Killing that process makes the setup process fail, but I don’t get any detailed information about the real issue, probably because the problem isn’t recognized by the MSI system. I’ll go with 2005 for the time being, but I hope I’ll find out later why this happens.

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
