I try to install Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition, but when it's more than half, I have this message:
"Error 32003.File 'C:\Programmi\Microsoft Visual 9.0\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat' could not be opened for write. Retry or Cancel"
Retry don't solve so I need to cancel the installation.
Well, I know there's another post with the same problem, but those answers don't work for me.
So anyone have new solutions or idea?.
I have Windows XP with the newer patch and update, and I have already installed VisualC#, VisualWeb and VisualBasic 2008 EE, without problem.

Try the following steps taken from a former discussion:

I just make this information easier so people can understand it.
Go to My Computer
Move your cursur(mouse) to the File Edit View Favorites Tools Help shown on the top of address bar and the back button.
Go to Tools and click Folder Options...
Go to the View tab / Advance Settings:
Go to the very bottom and you would see Use simple file sharing (Recommended)
Go to your Microsoft Visual Studio 8 Folder in Program Files
Locate the file you had problem with for example (vsvars32.dat, sdkvars.bat, etc.)
Right Click on the file and go to Properties and go to the Security Tab.
Find your user name and check the box in the Write / Allow section.
I hope this information would help you.
When you encounter this error, do not click on "cancel"; finish the above steps and then click on "retry".

Thanks, I knew that post but it's not work for me
I have tried to modify that proprieties from the folder's proprieties, but I've not right to touch vsvars32.bat.
I check the file with Unlocker: it says the file it was used by nothing but it can move or copy it.
It's strange because that file it was create by the install process and when I cancel it, after the error message, the process delete it.
