VS 2005 Beta 1 and SQL Server 2005

I've been using Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 for the last few weeks, and I
now want to try using SQL Server 2005 Beta with it. I've been to the
Microsoft URL http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/sql/ which allows
you to download a product called SQL Server Express (April CTP). It
also specifies that you must uninstall all Express software and the .NET
framework 2.0 from your machine before downloading. Does this mean
uninstalling the VS 2005 Beta 1, or just the .NET framework? I don't
have access to VS 2005 Beta 2 and will probably be working with Beta 1
for a while.
Any help would be really appreciated.

Cheers,

Mike

Hey Mike

To use the April CTP of SQL Server 2005 you would have to also use the
correct build of the .NET Framework which would be the official April CTP.

This would also mean that you would have to use the Beta 2 of Visual Studio
2005, which you can aquire from MSDN subscriber downloads.

Doug,

I don't have an MSDN subscription. Where can I download a version of
SQL Server 2005 that I can run with VS 2005 Beta 1?
Thanks,

Mike
