Anyone yet using Microsoft's Visual Web Developer 2005 Beta 2

Anyone yet using this software? A free beta version is available here:

I did some testing of various ways to evolve from Access databases w/
forms to .NET and found that there still seemed to be a lot of code
required to do what you could do in Access/Windows without any code.
See my comments here:

This may just be the answer I have been looking for.

If anyone has tried using this with Access databases as the data source,
I would like to hear what your experience has been.

I assume you really meant to reference
"TSI Form/Report to Data Access Page Wizard (Access 2000/2002, now
supports subforms!) "

and yes, I tried the prior version and couldn't get it to work.
Unfortunately it is not supported/no assistance - free code. Couldn't
locate anyone who was using it that might help. Gave up.

Subforminator is interesting but not related to what I posted.
