Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 Installation problem.

Today I installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 from the Visual
Studio Beta Experience Kit. After installing (which takes way to long)
when I open Visual Studio 2005 I only get a message box saying "A
problem was encountered loading the Microsoft Visual Studio menu.
Please run setup and select Repair". I did that and that took another
hour to install and I still got the same problem. Can't see any log
file or system event message describing the problem in greater detail
(Any useful error message would help me way more).

The installer had some problems with some additional products (like j#
or web components), but that happend for previous Beta 1 installers as
well and Visual Studio still worked. I had the Beta1 version installed,
then the December and then the February CTP versions (all those
versions got their own problems, but at least I got them started). I
uninstalled them, but maybe there are some wrong registry settings or
old files flying around causing this trouble.

Anyone any idea? Don't want to reinstall everything over and over when
I still got the same error every time.

Please post Beta2 issues/questions to one of the Forum at

If you had previous installs of Whidbey on the machine (say beta1) then you
need to run the cleanup tool so Beta2 will work. Check out this article for
more information.

I'm using Visual Studio, with ASP.NET. Is VSS on a separate CD. Also, is it possible to use the VSS beta (2005) with .NET if I'm not using the .NET beta. And finally, where do I get the VSS beta... when I go to msdn, it just directs me to a page with Whidbey downloads.... nothing mentioned on VSS TY Jason Shohet

Hi, I've installed (by that I mean a full uninstall and re-install) Visual Studio 2005 at least twice on my 64-bit windows machine (AMD64). I make sure I install the SDK 2.0 for x64, and the installation is completed 'Succesfully' as per the setup dialogs. However, when I try to open the IDE by clicking on the shortcut, or attempting to open \Common7\IDE\devenv.exe, I get the following dialog:

Hello, I'm having some problems installing Visual Studio 2005. I'll briefly explain what's the history of the problem here. First I installed VS 2005 beta 2. I uninstalled it later via the Windows Uninstall Tool you can download. Then I installed Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition ENU. This was a trial version for 180 days.

I haven't seen anyone mention it here yet so I thought it would be worth noting that MS has apparently released VS 2005 Service Pack 1. It's available at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=BB4A75AB-E2D4-4C96-B39D-37BAF6B5B1DC&displaylang=en A bit of a big download, but hopefully it will be worth it. --

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
