    Hi,

    I have downloaded the french version of the installer. It won’t let me install the framework on my PDA without also installing the SDK on my desktop. This cannot be disabled. I don’t need the SDK on this system so why force me to swallow 91 MB of useless files :-)) ?

    I have reported this to the Feedback Center.

    Cheers.
