Installing Visual Studio 2005 Beta

Finally got my VS 2005 Beta 1 working.. am going to create a Outlook application using the VSTO 2.0.

Had problems installing VS 2005 Beta 1 as my MSI was giving some issues.. Post installation, starting VS 2005 Beta 1 would end in an error - "Application configuration error" sort of thing..

I discovered it was Data Execution Protection (DEP) feature of the XP SP2 that was in confict with the MSI. Well, from then it was an easy chore.

Went to the Control Panel -> System -> Advamced -> Performance -> Settings -> Data Execution Protection tab and added MSI as an execption. That did it!

A re-install of VS 2005 and my VS 2005 Beta 1 was successfully installed..
