Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta was released a few weeks ago. If the installation on your computer failed with a "fatal error" message in the summary dialog, you may want to check to see if the KB944899 for VS 2008 was already installed. This patch was released by Microsoft as a hotfix roll-up to solve a number of slow response issues with VS 2008 and VWD 2008.

The error message is not displayed immediately after you start the installation. Instead, it is displayed at the end of the 20-minute installation process. If you view the installation log file, you will see reason being the KB944899 needs to be removed.

Fortunately, the remove utility for KB944899 was provided on Code Gallery, and it can be downloaded here. Running this tool will clean up your previous hotfix roll-up. After that, install VS 2008 SP1 beta again. It should go through fine this time.
