This tutorial teaches you to install Visual Studio 6 with Service pack 5 under Windows Vista RTM. I don't know if it works for Service pack 6 but I recommend sp5 anyhow.

- Right click on Setup.EXE from the Visual Studio 6 CD (MSVS98) and choose 'Run As Administrator' (take note it doesn't matter if your user is already an administrator you still must 'Run as Administrator')
- You may encounter some strange 'Yes/No' questions which you may not know the answers to that have not prompted you during Visual Studio Setup before. I don't remember what I clicked exactly, but I remember one of them said 'Do you want to overwrite your 'blah blah' settings?' and I clicked 'No'.
- You will need to reboot twice during installation
- Before running Service pack 5 setup, you must make modifications to the file 'sp598ent.stf' here's how to do that (note some of the spaces have been truncated, try to not remove the extra space in the stf file when modifying it)...

Step 1) Open C:\ServicePack5Dir\sp598ent.stf with 'Notepad.exe'
Step 2) Replace the following line;

13 Group 28 36 38 29 30 32 26 27 14 25 16 17 20 18 19 15 39 21 22 24 23 43

-with-

13 Group 28 38 29 30 32 26 27 14 25 16 17 20 18 19 15 39 21 22 24 23 43

Step 3) Delete the following lines leaving only a carriage return where it was

36 Depend "27 ? : 37"
37 IsWin95 CustomAction "sp598ent.dll,CheckForMDAC"

Step 4) Save and close C:\ServicePack5Dir\sp598ent.stf

- If you do not wish to modify this file yourself, you may download it directly from this url...

- Once you are done with that, you must run right click 'setupsp5.exe' and choose 'Run as Administrator' (if you do not run as administrator it will not work)
- Service Pack 5 Setup should work fine now.
