Ok, I tried installing Web Developer Express 2008. and Visual Studio 2008, and they kept on flunking out.
Web Dev couldn’t install the patch for KB … and Visual Studio couldn’t install Document Explorer 2008 cause it couldn’t find dexplore.exe
Nothing worked. So I downloaded the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and went nuts on everything related to old Visual Studio files and .Net framework stuff.
And guess what? Visual Studio finally installed – yay!
