How to install Visual Studio 6.0 on Vista

26 Jan

Don’t know why Vista says that Visual Studio has known compatibility issues with windows vista.

if the setup is run in compatibility mode, VS works fine in Vista.

right click and click properties on setup.exe in the Visual Studio cd-rom

click on the compatibility tab

check the “run this program in compatibility mode” and select windows xp

right click on setup.exe and run as administrator

There will be a “known program compatibility issues”

click on run program (you may choose to check don’t show message again)

follow the steps in setup (if any pop-ups appear just allow setup.exe to continue)

cheers you may start using your c++ programs

if any compatibility issues pops up again just click on run program
