  • Be sure to uninstall any beta versions! As the dialog suggest. There is an uninstall tool.

    I also found this blog that mentions uninstalling.

    The above links where found doing a google search for "vs2005 beta uninstall tool", I would start with the first one and follow the instructions. Remember that there are about 50 from memory Registration keys, several files in the program files, also under the common files inside the program files. There are also files located inside the users documents and settings, both in my documents, local data, and application data. You will just have to keep digging.
