2 things...

I tried downloading the visual c++ express... i opened the setup..it started up..then it said i need sp2 to continue..since i don't have sp2 and i have tried to install it many times (failing) i guess i won't be able to use this program :tazz:

Anyway, apart from that, whats the difference from express and normal?

You will need SP2 for installing it, actually its the new .NET Framework i.e. 2.0 that requires it.
Refer the following link for the comparisons:
