>Goodbye Orcas, Hello RTM

>I haven’t been up to date with Visual Studio 2008 now that it already has RTMed. Since I have some spare time to download the RTM version, I’ve decided to uninstall my Beta 1 installation of Visual Studio Orcas. In previous versions like Visual Studio 2005, this was a total pain until Microsoft decided to release those cleanup utility. For Visual Studio 2008, Microsoft came up with a documentation on how to uninstall the previous builds before installing the RTM version (unfortunately, I’ve installed Beta 1 on my “work” station which I rarely do). The only issue I have encountered is that the uninstall process screwed up my Microsoft Outlook 2003, probably because of the Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime. I ended up fixing my Microsoft Office 2003 installation. I’ll wait until I finish downloading the bits then off I go to install Visual Studio 2008 (I still have to be content with SQL Server 2008 CTP for the mean time)
