WORKAROUND: Visual Studio 2008 Fails To Install

You are running as a limited user on Windows Vista and when you run Visual Studio 2008's installer and approve the UAC prompt, setup either hangs during the .NET Framework 3.5 installation or the installation hangs during setup.

Reboot your machine.
Log in as an administrator.
Install the .NET Framework 3.5 installer by itself.
Reboot your machine.
Log in as your normal user.
Install Visual Studio 2008 as normal.
