Please help - trying to install Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite on computer.
Meets all hardware/software requirements (had VS2003 no problems).
I get this error:

The data file 'C:\Documents and Settings\jdoe\Local
Settings\Temp\SIT25815.tmp\DefFactory.dat' cannot be opened.

I have tried sharing the drive, the directory, taking away 'Read Only'
setting, among others. I can open the file manually, no problem. Any
suggestions????
thanks!!!
