Did recent Win 2000 updates cause VS .NET 2003 to re-install itself?

Did recent Win 2000 updates cause VS .NET 2003 to re-install itself?

Post by Howard Kai » Mon, 20 Oct 2003 04:50:19


I have a multiboot system with VS .NET 2002 Pro and VS .NET 2003 Pro
installed in separate bootable systems.
I installed VS .NET 2003 on 21 August 2003, but have used mostly VS .NET
2002 since then.
When I get Office 2003 and VSTO, then I'll start using VS .NET 2003.

Today, I had a reason to try upgrading a VB 6 project to VS .NET 2003, so I
rebooted to the OS with VS .NET 2003.
I double clicked the .VBP file and VB 6 started, but so did an installation
of VS .NET 2003.
Indeed, I was even asked to insert disk 1 of the installation set.

What causes this re-installation?
How can I avoid this?

2. How do I prevent Word 2000 from trying to re-install itself wh

It's not Word 97 that asks for the CD each time, it's Word 2000. I installed
it, installed all the updates, and then also did a Repair, but the problem
still exists. I have .DOC files open in Word 97 by default, but Word 97
apparently also resets the Open, New, Print, and PrintTo registry keys to
point to itself, then when I run Word 2000 it runs the installer, which then
asks for the CD. I'm wondering if there's a way to remove the installer or
put some kind of stub program in its place so the Word 2000 will open without
undoing my Registry changes. Do you know what program is being run when Word
2000 starts the installer?

Thanks,
David
