96% setup was unable to create the program folder

I had the same problem, to solve it I repeat the installation and when the message "Setup was unable to create the program folder" I went to installation directory "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio" and I made a copy of the whole directory to another location in my hard drive. Then I back to installation screen and I accepted the message box. As it was expected original installation folder disappeared. I restored installation folder from the copy I had made previously. At last I created a short cut to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDEV98\BIN\DFDEV.EXE" and started Visual Fortran from this shell without any problem. I hope this tip could be useful, regards. tbeltran

I can not install Compaq Fortran

NO PC stated.W7-32 or 64bit? is that PC running 64bit OS?if yes,do you expect to use 2000 Fortran to load and even work under that? 18 years old disks? why?why not buy new compiler for modern PC's?the only hope, is to run Setup.exein COMPAT mode.right click the EXE. on CD. (properties)pick cOmpat tabrun this program in compat mode.. check the box.the pick what? XP ?OMG, windows 2000? (that is what this was made for in 2000 year, windows 2000.the relic instructions still pollute the internetper here. and is a very buggy program.https://www.cs-software.com/software/fortran/compaq/cvf_relnotes.htmlrecap.try the CD on other PC,? if that fails, CD is bad.?if that works maybe your CD in the first PC the CD drive is bad.?or that PC w7 is infected.or that PC is running 64bit and some 32bit programs do flat fail to run on 64bit PCs, for many reasons,and for sure compilers that can not recognize thatmodern processor you have, 18 years newer.I bet its upgrade time, a new compiler.

Installed my Compaq Visual Fortran

be like the first FORTAN, post ever in 25 years, wow, what a BLAST FROM THE PAST ! ID say you are missing some FORTARN LIBRARY"s join a Fortran form? with old retired guys, there. form prime time circa 1970? or older? this is a very old math based (formula) complied language. It is a very limited and near useless Language. (used by bankers) its totally obsolete now, finding all the pieces to make it work can be hard. for sure old long gone now, Libraries. at link time those are RESOLVED. yours fails there, it can find them. id read the source and find those eternal links. then see if the poor old sod put comments there. like (this is advanced Trig functions in lib, xxxxx , sold by zzzzz0 it can be anything, the purpose of the program was not stated.

Problem with Compaq Fortran & Vista

I found the solution fortunately:

It's enough to do a right click on the bottom: "Developer Studio" instead of double click, and select: "Run as Administrator" , then select: "Allow" and so on..

Try it, it works!

Reinstallation problem

Same error here. Compaq Visual Fortran 6.5/6.6.
I think is a problem related to Windows XP SP3.

- Solution:
Re-install Windows XP SP3 (integrated).
Right after installation (no reboot) run the CVF installer. It will work.
Then do normall installation stuff.
If you have Windows XP SP2 you won't have any problem.
Hope it helps.

Couldn't find ANY solution with SP3 installed before CVF installation.
