If any other company was as difficult to deal with as ms I would not do business with them, Why do I do this, the same thing over and over again. Maybe, I was already crazy.

I have XP SP2. I have downloaded the Express setup. When I attempt to initialize install the tranfer fails everytime. I have, on several occasions reviewed the installation trouble shooting guide.

I cannot connect to the server for some reason. So, I cannot download a different type of setup.

I know that others are having the same problem.

O, what to do.

"I think, I'm CRAZY"

If you purchased a copy you wouldnt need to download it.

If you want assistance then perhaps if you provide more information about what steps in the troubleshooting you had tried, what the results were and what error messages you are getting then people may be able to provide some assistance. The more information you can provide - including exact error messages, checking in the system event viewer to see if there were any events raised which can provide clues as to what is happening, the more likely you are to get a positive response.

You could always download the ISO image and burn a CD.

I have attempted to provide all of the infornation I have to describe the problem. I am unable to access ISO image, I am denied a connection to the server. Which is the same problem I have when I attempt to inialize the download. That is all I know at this time. I am extremely frustrated, I have tried to follow the available technical information for troubleshooting the problem and have not succeeded. Is purchasing the product the issue

Should I give up on installing an express product I have invested my time on every suggestion given to me in an attempt to resolve my problem. Which is to connect to the msdn download server or web page. I do not have a problem with any other downloads other than msdn server, I download regularly. I still receive updates also, so I can be communicated with. But I cannot connect to the server. Over and over I have I have diligently tried suggestions, to no avail. Someone suggested that I should purchase the Express product, suggesting that, I should pay for this misery. At least the experience has provided me with irony, absurdity and a laugh. Again, XP Personal, SP2, broadband, not behind a corporate server, and I have checked and re-checked all suggestions. So, should I give up or is there something else
