I can't install VS.NET 2008 that I downloaded from MSDN.  The disc works perfectly fine on Windows XP.  I have had this same problem on Windows Vista and now I have it on Windows 7.

Thanks again for your comments and suggestions. Just to let you know we currently have some extra information in MSDN download page for VS10 Beta2 ( that indicates hash values to validate your download.
If redownloading the media doesn't fix the issue you are encountering, feel free to reactivate this item.

Your installer should provide this advice (redownload) and explanation (corrupt media) as a guide to the user, then. The disc was downloaded from MSDN. MSDN should provide a better way of validating downloads.

Hi Legalize,

We know from looking at your logs, that you encountered a 1330. This type of issue typically means that either your media is corrupted or the connection between your media and your local machine was flaky.

The common workaround is to redownload the media and copy the setup locally on the hard drive and then run the installation. This fixes nearly all of the issues of this type.

Please let us know if this does not fix your issue.

best regards!

I can make my machine available by remote desktop if you want to probe it for more information.
