Visual Studio 2005 SP1 installation tips...
So during the new year holidays, it's a good time to take some care of current software installations, also a good time to back up important data to DVDs...
I was installing Visual Studio 2005 SP1, and same as Jeffrey, I failed several times on installing the patch and need to refer to the KBs to solve the policy problems.
Before you also wanting to update to VS2005 SP1, follow the steps below to prevent waiting long time of the installation and get errors and start again.
KBs to read:
- download the SP1 from here
- follow the official kb to modify software policy to prevent error 1718 dialouge
- uninstall Scott Gu's Web Application Project if you installed it before
- Install the SP1
that's it. thanks to Jeffrey's post to reduce my time on searching of the KBs.
