Thank you for your response.
By using install-tl.zip for Windows, I could downloaded TexLive 2008 files, but the final stage of the execution shows like this: 
27 File(s) copied
1 File(s) copied
Running fc-cache -v -r
running mktexlsr C:/Program/texmf-dist C:/Program/texmf
mktexlsr: Updating C:/Program/texmf-dist/ls-R...

re-running mktexlsr C:/Program

pre-generating all format files (fmtutil-sys --all), be patient...done
Logfile: C:/Program/install-tl.log
Press any key to continue . . .

If I press any key as it says, then the execution stops and the prompt window disappear. I tried more than once, but the results were the same. Obviously, the process is not done, but somehow Latex and Metapost work before turning off the PC. But after I turned it on again, then the following message shows:
There is a file or folder on your computer called "C:\Program" which could cause certain applications to not function correctly. Renaming it to "C:\Program1" would solve this problem. Would you like to rename it now?
I click yes and tried LaTex, then it no more woks. 
WinEdt Diagnosis shows :
Tex-Root not found :\TexLive
So, I changed C:\Program1 to C:\TexLive, but still it didn't work.
Can you understand the problem? Is there anyone who could succeeded with this method to install TexLive window version?

I can only report this translated from a german vista:
