Visual Studio 2005 up on MSDN...

No more Beta; this is the real deal! It is now time to blow away all the Beta stuff and get ready for the final product install. Haven't seen any specific instructions on uninstalling Beta 2; however, I followed the Beta 1 uninstall as below:

  1. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional" or other related IDE installs such as (Visual Studio Professional/Standard/Enterprise Architect/Team Suite, etc.)
  2. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition"
  3. Remove "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Tools Express Edition"
  4. Remove "Microsoft SQL Native Client"
  5. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio 64bit Prerequisites Beta"
  6. Remove "Microsoft MSDN Express Library 2005 Beta"
  7. Remove "Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Office System 2005 Runtime Beta"
  8. Remove "Microsoft Device Emulator 1.0 Beta"
  9. Remove "Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Beta"
  10. Remove "Microsoft SQL Mobile 2005 Development Tools"
  11. Remove "Microsoft Visual J# Redistributable Package 2.0 Beta".
  12. Remove "Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Beta".
Everything seemed to uninstall correctly. Now just awaiting the download to complete to perform install - fingers crossed ;-)

Update: There is also this uninstall tool from Microsoft; I ran this and it found another component to delete - nice one!
