I suggest just installing the service pack itself from:

Its ok for me to uninstall my previous installation ( since it was a recent
install )
I want to know if the file i downloaded is the full-blow thing, with, with
visual studio 2008 sp1, .NET framework 3.5 sp1 and the new SDKs for C++.

thanks again :)

In fact i will install it ( if thats the case) then install an express
edition of C#, i dont like to have so many languagues in a single IDE.

bye. thanks in advance.

I don't know exactly what you've downloaded, to be honest - but the
link that I posted certainly worked for me.

The Express editions do have significant restrictions. (It's also very
handy to be able to have multiple languages in a single IDE every so
often...)

As John mentions, you can get the kit from MS but if you've been an early
adopter and installed any of the beta versions so you cn play with Entity
Framework and such be sure to use the Service Pack preparation tool which
you can find here.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

it will uninstall everything and clean up the mess left by the various
betas. Beware of firewall issues though. I am having trouble running this on
a system that is behind a very secure firewall and proxy. It does need to do
additional downloads.

Well, im just a hobbist and probably i messed up trying to install through
the .ISO. So ive resorted to install through the web installer, that seemed
to work.

bye.
