VS2010 RC1 installation steps

I downloaded VS2010 RC1 Ultimate edition from MSDN.It took 12 hours to download 2.25 GB whole set up pack.

If you are installing in windows XP box you should have windows xp service pack3 as prerequisite.Otherwise you get the following error.

Windows XP SP3 Required Error
Windows XP SP3 Required Error

If you don't have windows xp service pack3 (360 MB in size) please download and install from the following link.

Windows XP SP3 Installation Steps

Very important thing is to remove the Handwriting settings in the language settings to avoid Data Execution Prevention (DEP) Error.

To fix or resolve the issue related to DEP go to ControlPanel->and then double-click Regional and Language Options.
On the Languages tab, under Text services and input languages, click Details.
Under Preferences,select Handwriting settings and remove it.
