Visual Studio 2010 on Windows 2000 KernelEx[RESOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Everyone!

I have an old laptop (Pentium 4 2.80GHz, 30 GB hard drive, 512MB RAM) where I installed Windows 2000 with KernelEx 2.8c 
Many programs that didn't work before now work perfectly.
Now I would like to install Visual Studio 2010 Express (requires only 2GB).
Here's what I did:

  1. I downloaded the Visual Studio offline iso file from the internet
  2.  I downloaded a utility called ImDisk (It allows to emulate a dvd drive when you select the iso)
  3. I tried to start the program, it started, but it didn't go far ... Because it gave an error when it tried to install the .net Framework 4.0 Multi-target.

On the internet I have found nothing on how to run it on Windows 2000.
Anyone knows?
Thanks :)

(P.S. I managed to install .net framework 3.5 and .net framework 2.0 SP2)

Install @blackwingcat's .NET Framework 4.0 package instead of the official Microsoft package from his Windows Legacy Update site (http://w2k.flxsrv.org/wlu/wlu.html).

Click on "legacy windows catalog" and you will find it.

I have windows 2000 in english. Should I download the third file on this list?

.Net Framework 4.0 For Win2000(for Extended Kernel v2.1b and later) RC1
http://w2k.flxsrv.org/cgi-bin/wluc.cgi?OS=1&TYPE=-1&LANG=0&DATE=201&DATE2=/&KEY=.net+4.0&DLANG=2

UPDATE: If I download the third file(The non-beta file) it says not found.... but there is a string in the end of the url "&lang=ja"(language = japan) if I remove it, the site gives me a bad gateway error :(

Ok, I tried to install .net framework 4.0 RC3 from @blackwingcat blog, but I think is in a loop...

I started the program more than 2 hours ago and it keeps installing.... :(

I also found a comment describing the same problem(I used google translate from Japanese to English)

Yes, it does take a long time to install. It took well over an hour on a Core 2 Duo E6700 desktop with a 7200 RPM HDD, so I'd hate to see how long it would take on a P4 laptop.

Hello, I'm back! :) 

So I made it! I installed succesfully .net framework 4.0 for windows 2000!

I downloaded this utility for checking installation: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2008/10/13/net-framework-setup-verification-tool-users-guide/

It says all OK.

Now the problem is that I can't bypass this setup limitation... In fact it tries anyway to install .net framework.... I noticed that is 4.0 but is for multi target.. So I think that I should find some vs 2010 setup that installs directly without all those features....

Anyone has a link?

UPDATE: I tried and now is installing, I will update you in case of success or failure. See you later! :) 

(P.S. I really appreciate your help :D)

Perfect! It is installed! But only 2 optional components are not installed:

Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5(x86) - Windows XP

Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5 Update(x86) - Windows XP

but it is installed! So MANY Thanks @win32 for your help and @blackwingcat for his KernelEx

Now I will go to his blog and try to find those components
