The long and the short of it is that the VS 2003 upgrade installer just looks for the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect - English
... and the following value:
That value need to have a string value that contains the full path to a program that will have an exit code of 0. (I used "c:\windows\notepad.exe")
Run the install, Enter your product key, click continue, you'll see notepad pop up. Close it, and the install will continue.
PS: Some of you may be wondering why I'm installing VS2003. Well, the XBox Dev Kit won't install properly without it. I'm installing the XDK to see if I can get some of these emulators to compile a working XBE using the (better optimizing) cl.exe from VC++ 2008.
