VS 2005 Service Pack 1 Available -- Go Get It Now
If you haven't heard it already, VS 2005 Service Pack 1 is out and can be downloaded here
. It contains over 2200 bug fixes according to Scott Guthrie
, as well as making Web Application Projects standard once again. Also according to Scott, the install time can vary significantly depending on what you have installed, and is especially very long if you have C++ installed. My own experience was that it took about an hour to install on my system, although that actually involved what I can only describe as two 1/2 hour installs. Yes, maybe it was a fluke due to something on my system, but it installed once and said it was done, and then kept going with another install, including the exact same couple of dialogs, before finally asking to reboot. Maybe your experience will be different, but in the end I suppose what matters the most is that our VS 2005 experience will now be improved every day.
