When I inserted the setup CD of Visual Studio .NET Professional 2002 under my Windows XP Home edition on a notebook, it repeatedly said "check product information for system requirement." And an error message box repeatedly appeared:

I have tried to rename the above directory to reduce the path length. However, it said the names such as "Documents and Settings" are required by Windows XP system, and thus cannot be renamed. What should I do? Thanks!
This is certainly a bug in Visual Studio .NET's installation. You should definitely report this to Microsoft.
