    Is this for the Orcas version of VC# Express?

    Yes — VC# Express Orcas April CTP. The VB Express Orcas is due shortly.

    As of this morning, the beta downloads still exhibit this problem. You hunt all over creation to find the cause of the problem, and eventually arrive here, where you find out that the fix has been available for weeks but the beta downloads haven’t been updated with the fix. <sigh> Can you *please* update the beta downloads so that they contain fix for this issue? It’s beyond the point where it’s going to save me any time, but for the thousands of people who are following me…

    I’m sorry finding the patch was so time-consuming. I’m afraid we’re not going to re-release the CTP of the Express SKUs, but soon we will have our next CTP available which will incorporate this fix.
