Blend for VS2008 RTM? (BenHayat) - 11/27/2007 9:07 AM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: BenHayat


    Hi;
    When can we expect to have Blend2 for VS2008 RTM? Or does the September 
    Preview work with the RTM version?
    
    Thanks!

    The September Preview works with VS 2008 beta so it should work with RTM.

    Is there a specific order these need to be installed in?  I have a new Vista 
    machine, installed VS 2008 RTM, and then tried to install Blend 2 September 
    release and received a message about not being able to install because .NET 
    3.0 or 3.5 weren't installed.  I'm pretty sure VS 2008 takes care of 
    installing the Framework.  Plus it's a Vista machine which should already 
    have 3.0.  What's the trick?
    
    Thanks.

    Version contains a value of 3.5.21022.08 in that v3.5 location.
    
    For the v3.0 location the value is 3.0.04506.648.
    
    I also read somewhere that it checks the WPF version in the 
    ...\v3.0\Setup\Windows Presentation Foundation key.  That value is 
    3.0.6920.1109.

    On a different thread, Annie suggested the following workaround and it 
    seemed to work - does it work for you?
    
    I found where this problem has been reported but I haven't yet found a
    solution. Would you please try this: Uninstall the September Preview and
    then re-install by right clicking on the installation file and choosing "Run
    As Administrator" from the context menu. Please let me know if this works.
    
    We will actively investigate this issue today, but hopefully the workaround 
    will get you underway. The registry key has the version we expect - so 
    things should not be failing.
    
    Thanks,
    -Unni

    As far as uninstalling goes... there's no option to uninstall it, because I'm 
    guessing it's never really installed in the first place.  I get the error 
    message before the installation completes.
    
    As far as the right-click and selecting 'Run As Administrator', I don't have 
    that option in the context menu.  But I am logged in already as an account 
    with Admin privs, so that may be why I don't see that option.  Unfortunately 
    I'm a bit new to Vista, so I'm unfamiliar with the nuances.
