Nov. CTP Installation Gotchas
So I’m at work and trying to install the November CTP from my one laptop to my test laptop. Here’s a few gotcha’s that you need to know when using Nero Image Drive
- You cannot connect directly to the virtual drive, you need to share it from your host machine.
- The setup will fail trying to find the file VS_SETUP.MSI if installing across a network address (ie: \\192.168.25.1\vs2k5\vs). To solve this issue map a drive on your test machine to that folder and try re-running the install, works just fine. Odd how this works, bug?
- You have to install all the products in order to not receive an error message – this was posted previously, I just want to reiterate the fact.
- I love that we don’t have pre-reqs anymore!
Update – I can’t get it to install! ERR! Nothing I do makes a difference! Ohh, its not a clean install – any ideas from the MS camp?
Update 2 – Attempting to install the 2.0 framework individually reports that my Windows Installer service cannot be accessed. I just may go with a fresh rebuild – not like I have anything of importance.
