I am having some problems installing the CTP. The setup completes successfully but nothing seems to be installed at all. I am unable to use the new constructs in C# projects and there's no program folder created under "Documents", where it should be I think. I am using VS 2010 Professional on Windows 7.
Thanks in advance!Friday, October 29, 2010 1:52 PM
Just to clarify... It sounds like the CTP actually installed successfully on your machine and you're able to use the features.
However, the problem is that you don't see the following directory on disk?
C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Microsoft Visual Studio Async CTP

When the installation finishes a new Windows Explorer window is opened that shows the content of my Documents folder, but the Async CTP directory isn't in there. And in Visual Studio, when I create a new Console app project and type some async code, it doesn't recognize the new keywords.Friday, October 29, 2010 6:42 PM
Another reason for this behavior can be that you already installed updates for Visual Studio 2010. The Async CTP is not compatible with updates to Visual Studio that modified the VB or C# language services. Can you go to “View Installed Updates” and see if you have any of the following updates installed for Visual Studio? 1) KB983571 2) KB2266012 3) KB2123002Friday, October 29, 2010 10:24 PMModerator
I saw a similar problem when installing on a machine that only have VS 2010 Express edition installed. I can use the compiler on the command line but no examples are installed.
To be fair the MSDN download page doesn't like the Express edition as a supported version.Monday, November 01, 2010 10:54 AMModerator
Express versions are not supported. You can get the trial version of Visual Studio from here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/downloadTuesday, November 02, 2010 3:46 PMModerator
Hello Lucian Wischik,
is there any explaination why the Async CTP works only with the US-version of VisualStudio 2010? The installation dialog of Async CTP appears in German.
Is the German version of VisualStudio 2010 mutilate in some hidden way?
Is there any intention to release the Aync CTP language-free next time?
