Installing CCR/DSS R2... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why is there a dependency to have CCR/DSS R1 installed in order to install R2 if they can be run side-by-side? While I understand that this is a design-time only dependency - its seems quite unnecessary. I am presuming that this is a licensing constraint - can someone confirm? I rather have a big fat EULA that I would(nt) read and a couple of extra dialog boxes to click through rather than have software clutter up and confuse me.

  • If you are trying to install RDS Standard Edition, then yes, this is a license checking constraint.

    The Express and Academic Editions do not have this constraint (and can install side-by-side with each other as well).

  • Thanks Trevor,

    And I understand why... but dont like it. I now have R1 and R2 installed side by side even though I will be using R2 only.

    If there is no runtime dependency can I then uninstall R1 and keep R2 installed?

    Just trying to keep my dev environment nice and clean...

    PS: Can you shed some light on my other post? (.NET 4.0/Oslo etc)

  • Yes, once you have R2 installed you can remove R1.

    As for .NET 4.0 and Oslo, I can't say much. In any case, .NET 4.0 is still a Beta. At some point in time we will upgrade to 4.0 (because we tend to stick to the latest version of .NET), but I don't know what we will do about Oslo.
