Visual Studio 2010 & .NET Framework 4.0 Beta 1 Out
For MSDN Subscribers, VS2010 and .NET 4.0 beta 1 have hit the downloads site.
After reading through Microsoft’s “Overview” page—my biggest hope is that it doesn’t do “too much”. Visual Studio is already a monolith of hard drive cranking pain as it is. My Cray is still being held up by our purchasing department—I hope I don’t need it. Maybe they took Win7’s approach that less is more and trimmed things down?
The biggest point of interest (so far, I mean—it’s still downloading) is the warning for Win7 RC:
NOTE: If you are installing Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 on Windows 7 RC, you may receive a compatibility warning when installing SQL Server 2008. For more information and a workaround, please click here.
The link, however, sends you to an explaination of the error—which is simply that Win7 RC requires SQL Server 2008 SP1 or 2005 SP3. If I remember right, I thought the error message SAID that. I guess Microsoft is just covering all of the bases.
I’ve got about 20 minutes left on the download and a VM waiting for this to be loaded. More to come!
