A couple of new Visual Studio and .NET Framework setup blogs

A couple of colleagues of mine from my days on the Visual Studio and .NET Framework setup team have started blogging and I wanted to post links to their blogs here and encourage everyone to check them out.  Quan has already posted some nice workarounds to tricky setup issues seen in the VS 2005 beta 2 and June 2005 CTP timeframes.  Pete started working on the setup team at the same time I did back in the day, and we can swap stories about the old days of VS .NET 2002, .NET Framework 1.0, and all the growing pains we went through to get those products shipped  🙂

You can check out their blogs at the following links:

    I have been trying to install Visual Studio .NET 2003 on my laptop (running on Windows XP Media Center 2002 edition). But each time it just gets stuck at the prerequisites installation with the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 failing to install or just gets hung there without progressing.

    I have tried to install these components separately but with the same results. Is there some way I could get this to install on my PC?

  2. Hi Rashmi – could you look for the file netfx.log in your %temp% directory and zip and send that to me in email so I can take a look and figure out why the .NET Framework 1.1 is failing? You can contact me at aaronste (at) microsoft (dot) com.
