Beta 2


So if you haven’t heard yet, Beta 2 is out of Vista, WinFX and the Expression suite including Expression Interactive Designer. There are hardly any breaking changes from a WPF perspective, so there isn’t an accompanying release notes.  Most apps should just recompile, which if you’ve been working with WPF for awhile and gone through the API-churn nightmare of former migrations between CTPs, you’re gonna be quite pleased.

    craig kelly-soens here, im getting the following error, on winfx runtime install,  i thought i’d post it asap, il also post any resolve, but it appears to be WCF based.

    (i’m installing may 06 CTP to complete my "long-time-coming" WinFx-WPF architecture article, yes im still on about it !)

    cheers,

    LEXP: ScreenSpaceLines3D was deprecated for WPF v1.

    CRAIG: Hmm.  Not sure what happened there on install.  Maybe try posting to the WCF forums.

    hi,

    with credit to the Avalon team for the answer

    the solution is indeed in the section titled

    2.7 WinFX Beta 2 installation fails on a system with WinFX Jan CTP or earlier previously installed

    of

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/windowsvista/support/relnotes/winfxbeta2/default.aspx

    but to save you time just type in

    sc delete "InfoCard Service"

    (IMPORTANT: i mean type in – if you paste it your quotes may not be right)

    and then re-run the install

    it worked for me….after i actually typed it !!
