Re-apply / re-install Windows XP SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I have a problem with my XP Pro installing VS TS 2008.


    I tried various things like removing my old VS 2005 and removing VS 2005 and 2008 from the registry hoping to fix the problem.  I also removed all .NET components, but to no avail.


    I would like to re-apply SP2.


    How long will the install take?  Will this bring back my PC to a base configuration?

    Will I have to re-install any or all application(s) again?

  • Hi eeidfn,

    Reinstalling the Windows XP will indeed bring your PC back to a base configuration, which will require you reinstall any and all applications. May I suggest that before doing that (if you haven't already) you pose your problem in the appropriate Community newsgroup to see if anyone has suggestions that you can try before taking the leap.

    Good luck,
