VB 2005 Beta 2 Express won't install

I get the following message box:

Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition Beta 2- ENU Setup
================================================== =

Setup has detected that previous versions of the following product(s) are
currently installed. Uninstall these applications before continuing with
Setup. For more information, see the readme.htm file. This file can be
found at the root of the DVD or CD1, on the Web download site for the
product, or on a network share, depending on how you install the product.
- Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition Beta - English

I've uninstalled the previous version and all programs indicated here:
http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/uninstall/

None show up in Add/Remove programs.

What is the problem?

Thanks!

Did you read the read document before you tried to install it?

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/uninstall/

There is a link whereas you can speak to Microsoft & they will supposedly
supply you with an answer. How true that is, who knows?

I installed the Beta 2 without any problems whatsoever. I now have Visual
Studio 6 Enterprise (Full Install), Visual Studio .NET 2003 Enterprise
Architect (Full Install) & Visual Basic .NET 2005 Beta 2 & they all work
fine with all languages

you may need to delete the previous dotnetfx file (this was the case when
installing SQL Server 2005 beta with VS 2005 beta installed)
