It says "Finished Downloading"
Install Progress: Installing IIS Components ][1 of 20]"
This is the first thing it does, and that's as far as it gets. If I go to task manager to kill it, it says it's waiting on user input, but I can't find any windows or anywhere, where it's asking me to respond to anything.

Does your windows account belongs to administrators group ? if not, please try again with admin windows account.
Also, if you already have an old version from the Web platform installer, try to uninstall it and use the latest version from microsoft to install a fresh copy.
Also, we need to know your windows os and wether it's a 64 bit or not.

I am the admin. It's vista home premium, sp2 32 bit. I rebooted , and restarted, and it seems to have gotten a little further along this time. It didn't appear to start, this time, with the IIS that it did last time -- unless it went thru it really
fast this time; right now, it's on Installing Visual Web Developer 2010 Express (2 out of 3), and now it seems to be hung there --- unless this is just really slow.

I do already have vis. studio 2008 and sql server 2008. Should I have uninstalled those before starting this?

Can you make sure that you are running the WPI application as administrator ? you can do that through right click on the application icon and selecting "run as administrator".

Well, it finally finished. Before I read your response, I uninstalled my prior vsn of sql server and all of the Vis. Web. Developer stuff that I found..I had a 2008 vsn of that, which I had never used, as well as some stuff from my earlier attempts this
Anyway, after uninstalling all that stuff, then some disk cleanup, I then rebooted the computer, restarted the WPI, and it finally worked.
I see that you have been working in asp.net for several years, Anas. I've been programming computers since the Stone Age -- but, I'm still programming Stone Age computers! --- Just now starting some web development, so this will be something new for me.
I very much appreciate your response to my questions.
