other day I had to install Visual studio.NET 2003 on my system, the problem was I had Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 with framework 2.0 and 3.5 and I did not have .NET 1.1 on it.

There were two suggetions from ppl at work:

  1. Install .NET framework 1.1 and load project in VS 2005
  2. You will need to Un install VS 2005 and 2008 and then install VS.NET 2003

After googling a little first idea did not seem workable and I was not ready to  follow the second option of starting all over. Half hour down I found a solution:

The trick is to install .NET framework 1.1 separately first and then run Visual studio 2003 installer.

-- Follow UP

VS 2003 is working fine, VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005 prompt an error on start   "unable to load file, this error could not be resolved, Please reinstall the application". It seems to work fine though.
