At last, some timings:
9:18 – end of .net framework install – Reboot
9:22 – Back from reboot (4 min for xp sp2 rc2 – too much)
9:58 – end of vs install -0 Reboot
10:01 – back from reboot (still almost 4 min)
10:03 – everything is finished
VSTO is working like a charm – try opening a new word project adding a custom user control and then addind an instance of it to this.ActionPane.Controls and run the project, it couldn’t be easier than that.
Coode Snippets are there too, love it – what is miising is a nice editor to add new ones, I heard there is one in the works…
