If, like me, you installed both beta 1 and beta 2 of Visual Studio 2005, and then went to to *try* and install the final version of VS 2005, then how did you find it - did it work?

For me, it was a nightmare!! I knew things were going wrong when the beta 2 uninstall tool crashed halfway through! I managed to get rif of beta 2, but after installing the final version, I had package load failures all over the place. I finally got it working today, after deleting assemblies from the gac, trashing my registry, and deleting folders all over the place.

If you're in the same boat - good luck. Oh, and start here: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/articles/492809.aspxl
Thats by far the hardest thing I've ever had to install!! Bring back the good old days of C programming on an Amiga 500, or even AMOS programming.....them were the days!
