Hi,

I am trying to install/repair Visual Studio 2005 from a MSDN DVD.  (Laptop,
XP Pro, up-to-date on updates, adequate memory).  There is already an
installation from one year ago, but some components are missing.  .Net 2.0
and Documentation install properly, but  when it gets to VS2005, I receive
this error:

Error 1706.  An installation error for the product MSVS 2005 Pro Edition -
ENU cannot be found.  Try the installation again using a valid copy of the
installation package 'vs_setup.msi'.

I have already selected this file in the appropriate folder on the DVD.
What gives?  Anybody have a suggestion.  I should be able to install this
easily.

Thanks

BJ
