I downloaded the installers for Visual C# and Visual Web developer a week ago and them install them the only annoying this was the you can only download the installer and not the files that make the program, this means every time that I install it I have to download the files through the setup again. and I need to do that now because there in something wrong with the programs and I can't open them, or uninstall them the only option is to reinstall the program by running the setup, which means re-downloading the files again. is there some way in intercept the files and save them to my hard dive so every time I run the set up I don't have to have it download the files just in case this happens again. many thanks for any help. :tazz:

go to the link and see for yourself. didn't cost me anything. Ttook about 2 weeks for me to get it. I don't know much about programing myself. However, I've reached a point in my career as a tech that I need to be able to program, script, debug, fix other peoples stuff if I want to go to the next level.

with such an investment surely you could talk the folks into helping you out. Its one of the few times MS did something right. Its a full dvd and I don't have any place to uploade for you to get it.
