It's just because you have a newer version of windows... it should still work for you, I hac the same problem on 3 different computers... plus blue screen of death and such, just check you program files/start folder and it should be there

I don't understand what you mean.
"just check you program files/start folder and it should be there"
Could tell me again clearly?
Because my teacher use Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 for C language course and test with it so I must install it.
Thank foy your reply.

Well I would suggest going to the microsoft website, and take a look at what other versions of VS C++ there are... make sure you are not trying to install a 64 bit program on a 32 bit os....

I mean after you install it, click start and it should be there, even if it says installation not successfully completed. I had the same problem. If only VB or some other program is there and not visual C++ then reinstall it but used advanced to only install VSC++

MS VC++ 6.0 was only in 32-bit version, first released in 1998. The last service pack SP6 was released in 2004.

I am locking this because the question is being asked on multiple forums.

You have two choices. Ask your teacher for help, or go to MSDN, as the error message suggested.
