The Quest of Learning CSS and Becoming A Webmaster

An Agony Installation Process

Sunday, November 13, 2005

I spent more than an hour just to install CSSVista. Thanks to my broadband internet connection, it only took me less than 5 minutes to download the 6MB CSSVista installation file. After finished downloading the zip installation file, I then executed the setup file. Unfortunately, something else came up:

I have no idea what .Net Framework Version 2.0 is. So I searched for it: (I didn't realized on the download page, it has been noted that this program is needed to install CSSVista)

Another surprise for me to see that the additional program was nearly 23MB big. Having no other choices, it took me 10 minutes to download this file, again thanks to my broadband connection. Installing this file alone took about 45 minutes.

I haven't learned how to use this CSSVista program yet. I need a time out first as the installation process (especially .Net Framework Ver 2.0) took quite a while. BTW, I have no formal knowledge in any programming language, so I have to find a way to overcome this problem by using any tool that I can find to leverage my time in learning CSS without having to learn it from scratch. Write again soon..

Ashraf: I'm sorry it's taken you so long to install the software. Unfortunately the .NET framework is mandatory, and does take a little while to install.

Hopefully now you have the software running you'll have some time to try it out. Other people who have been using it have been finding it really useful. One of the most common comments we've receivied (somewhat ironically) is that it saves people time whilst writing their CSS code.
