I want to install visual studio 6.0 enterprise edition. It gives error at "locate visual studio" and the error is "specified location is invalid ,choose another " It does not allow me to choose another location. I am stuck here for many days. Tried with different software of visual studio 6.0 but same problem. I must install visual studio 6.0 for some personal reasons and not any other. U can see all from the image file . kindly cooperate with me !

So the browse button doesn't work?

What OS are you installing this onto?

modi123_1: The wallpaper in the background and the Aero glass chrome suggest that they are trying to install on Vista or Windows 7 (unless they turned on the Desktop Experience on their Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2).

sanwall: Where did you get the disks for Visual Studio 6.0? Did you get it from a warez site, from an official download from MSDN, or from some old MSDN CDs circa the year 1998?

So we should point you to a better stolen copy because your pirated copy doesn't work?
Fyi amazon does have this.

1. Use MSDN on-line
2. Locate the file asked for by the installer*

*2 Often when an installer stops to ask for a location, it specifies a specific file that it cannot find. It maybe the file is missing or the file is now located in a different place to the place pointed to by the install script. Use Windows Explorer to locate the file with a search and insert the correct path. If this fails or you are unable to locate the file requested, try to find the file on-line, or locate an alternative installation resource.

When you decide to respect other people's intellectual property - that's when we can decide to help you out. Until then - we don't help with pirating.

I'd like you to consider what you're doing... You want to steal other people's programs so you can do what? make programs to sell? Aren't you really being part of the problem that is going to cause *your* programs to be stolen?

If you got VS 2006 Enterprise from a legitimate source, you would have the correct CDs to insert at the appropriate time.

I'm closing this thread for now. Feel free to PM me or flag this thread with a Report by pressing the Report button once you have a legitimate copy and are still encountering issues.
