VS2005 NOT Compatiblke with Vista? Are you serious?!

I tried installing my VS2005 Pro on Vista Ultimate 32 bit RTM today and got
errors stating that VS2005 was not compatible with Vista.

Microsoft...... please pull your finger out of my ass and tell me this is a
joke.

It must be a joke....because I also have read that VS2002 and VS2003 will
not be supported on Vista. This clearly violates Microsoft's own terms of
support for these products.

Is this even legal?

Should we apply the patch before installing or just ignore installation
errors and apply the patch after?

And, when we patch, which patch do we use? The BETA Vista Service Pack 1
(at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en)
or the Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Team Suite Service Pack 1 (at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en)
or some other patch that I haven't seen?

Geez people.....REAL basic is looking better all the time.

It runs fine if you dont use UAC, if you are a full permission admin it
works perfectly.. the Vista patch fixes some of the UAC issues

Is there a list of VS2005/Vista issues somewhere?

I assume it is best to avoid using VS2005 on Vista for any production stuff
at this time - correct?

To answer my own question....the postings at
http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=274496 seem to indicate that
you should install VS2005, then SP1 then the Vista patch.

I still haven't found a complete listing of Vista/VS2005 problems though.

After migrating from XP to Vista, the following piece of code Process.Start("subst", drive + " " + path); as well as DefineDosDevice(0, drive, path); // importing kernel32.dll simply stopped mapping drives. The funny thing is that running "subst " from command line performs this mapping. Any Ideas?
