Building machines for 3.0 RC1


G

GaryDean

I'm trying to build two machines (VMWare) to implement the .Net framework
3.0 RC1. The first is on Server 2003. The second is on Vista build 5744.

The documentation I have is a little contradictory as to what exactly is
needed for these two platforms. I already have Visual Studio 2005 from my
MSDN subscription.

On Server 2003 I think I need...

1. .Net Framework 3.0 Runtime Components (September CTP Build)

2. Windows SDK for September CTP of Windows Vista and .Net Framework 3.0
Runtime Components

(It's not clear to me if this second download (1124mb) contains item one.)

3. Orcas .Net 3.0 Development Tools? (are these needed for use vs2005 to
develop?)

4. I planning on passing on the WorkFlow Foundation for now.

On the Vista 5744 machine....

What do I need?

I would appreciate any help on this little puzzle.

I recommend installing all of the above. And no, the Windows SDK does not
contain any other of these components.

Hi Gary,

The Windows SDK doesn't contains the .NET 3.0 runtime. However, Vista has
..NET 3.0 runtime installed by default. If you need to install a different
build of .NET 3.0 runtime, you need to first unselect "Microsoft .NET
Framework 3.0" in "Control Panel/Programs and Features/Turn Windows
features on or off".

Orcas is needed if you need to use Visual Studio 2005 to edit such as .xaml
files.

Walter,
ok, let me recap to make sure I have this straight...

My new Server 2003 machine needs:
Windows SDK
3.0 runtime
Orcas
vs 2005

My new Vista machine needs:
Windows SDK
Orcas
vs2005

Is that right?

Walter,
thanks.

you might tell Tom Archer that his matrix doesn't render correctly as two
columns are cut off. I fixed that by pasting it into word but he still
might want to fix it.

I have Vista 5744 and that is not on his matrix so I guess it's a little out
of date.
