Removing VS2005 RC

I removed the Beta 2, and installed VS2005 Release Candidate. However, now
have a bug where tables are not visbile in the data sources window.
I checked on the MS site, and its bug ID FDBK37411

The fix there is to remove everything VS related and install again. I used
the MS uninstall tool.
I've done that and I still have the same problem.

User Yahya mentions he deleted the GAC - whats that?
Is there anything else I should do before trying another install?

Thanks

Deleting everything may be an overkill. Have you tried other solutions given
by the commentators under the same bug? I think it is something to do with
deleting settings folders etc. Check the duplicates of the bug as well.

If I am not mistaken GAC is normally in the folder <drive>:\<win
folder>\assembly.

Yes, that's correct.

..NET installs a shell extension for that folder but you can see the actual
contents using the DOS command line or using:

SUBST G: C:\Windows\Assembly

and navigating to G: drive with the Windows Explorer.

That SUBST command didn't work for me. Never heard of it before, sounds like
it could be useful.

I take it I should only delete GAC sub folders that mention .net

Also, where are these settings folders? I've tried installing to a different
drive letter, and still get the same problem.

SUBST is a DOS command so you need to open a DOS window (Start, Execute...
and then type cmd.exe. In the black window type:

SUBST G: C:\WINDOWS\ASSEMBLY

assuming that your windows directory is C:\Windows (the default in XP)

After that you have a new g: drive unit pointing to that folder and it will
cheat the shell extension on that folder.

These are my GAC folders. None seem to mention .net directly, so not sure
what to delete?
Also, and default locations of the settings folders, so I can delete them,
would be handy.

The whole GAC folder is related to .NET, so if you follow that route (a last
resort), you should delete the whole folder.
