> Have you verified that vcsetup.exe is the right thing?  I *guess* that vcsetup stands for "Visual C++ setup" and vcssetup for "Visual C Sharp Setup" but I'm not sure about it.

Yes, after choosing wrong the first time (based partly on the ordering relative to the accompanying text).  And yes, your guess is correct.

Incidentally, it was also odd that the VS executable wasn't obvious to locate.  After installing, only the "VS 2008 Remote Debugger" showed up in the Start menu.  The VS executable I found only in 
"Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\VCExpress.exe" and not in the "Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition..." folder.
