Hello all. I'm big time frustrated here. I'm on Windows XP Home. I recently had issues, and had to do a PC Recovery. All of my files are here, but some of the programs won't work. One of them that won't is Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. We need
to get VWD working!
I had to do a ton of Windows Updates all over again. I try to add Service Packs, 1, 2, 3.5, 4 client and 4 full, and I think I did it, but then I think I didn't. I can't tell if I did or didn't. I'm pretty sure I have SP 1 and 2 installed, and ASP.NET
2.0 Framework. But anything beyond that, I get errors.
If you have a second, we uploaded screenshots of my errors into photobucket:
Can anyone point us in the right direction? We've tried every Microsoft solution, and it always results in a "cannot download" error or something. Any advice helping us out here would be

Resinstallation of windows will solve your problem.

What is the service pack for windows XP? If you have installed earlier pre-release versions of .NET Framework 3.5, then you must uninstall them. Do you have windows installer 3.1 installed, this is one pre-requisite? Check the event viewer, if it shows any
Hope this helps

Hello. I used the Visual Studio uninstaller, but I think that it didn't uinstall EVERYTHING that VWD left behind, and that's the reason the install kept on failing. Once I manually deleted every instance of VWD from my registry, and manually removed instances
of VWD via Windows Explorer, then it finally installed properly, along with MS SQL Server RS 2008. So basically, I believe that's what was happening. It also helped that I used Aaron's msdn blog for a direct download link, although I still use the Platform
Installer for other things, like MVC 3.0 tools, etc.
Thank you all for your time in responding, and thank you for your advice -- it's much appreciated!

looks like an installed crashed during installing something and it may have left something behind
there is a free tool called ccleaner (google it) , and it will try to fix broken registery values and similar errors
if that didnt work, re-install windows.
