Installation of Visual Studio just hanged on Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

It stays on this way for a 2 hours now on "Executing action:DevEnv_Setup_x86_enu"

What I should do? Kill setup and try to repair later?

That happened to me as well, what I did is killed the installation process and restarted the computer. Once rebooted, I started the installation and all went perfectly fine.

It worked for me. First I was trying to just restart system without success, so I had no choice other than to kill setup. Then run setup successfully after restart. – volody Aug 23 '10 at 18:07
