VSNET: Problems adding VS 2005 extensions for .Net 3.0


D

Dave

I am running vs.net 2005 on an up to date XP SP2 system.

I just added the .Net 3.0 framework as well as the "Windows SDK for
Windows Vista" just fine.

I think I am supposed to add the two VS 2005 extensions for .Net Framework
3.0 for WWF and another for WCF and WPF. Problem is I get an unspecified
error
(see below) trying to install each of them and am merely allowed to report
the problem
to MSFT but did not see any logs etc. and am told the install failed.

If I run VS with just the SDK installed I can see that I am already able
to build projects for .Net Framework 3.0 for WCF and WPF so I am now
wondering if I should actually be installing the extension that supposedly
adds
these types of projects. On the other hand I see nothing for a WWF project.

So...after installing the Vista SDK should one install the VS 2005
extensions for WCF, WPF and WWF??? Prereq says the SDK is necessary
but doesn't specify the version. The Vista SDK that I installed is V6.

Here are some of the error from the app event log:

Product: Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF & WPF),

Yes I installed the Vista version of the SDK - version 6000.0.0 it says.
That installed and works just fine.

It is the 2 VSNET 2005 extension packages for WCF, WPF and WWF that did not
install.

Thanks,
Dave

Hello Dave,

Do u use the .NET 3.0 RTM? the release version?
Have u had any other version previousy installed? if had, download and run
pre-release .NET removal tools.
try to clear the temporary folders where they are extracted before install

Michael,

I think I installed the recently released final .Net 3.0 and had never
installed any previous 3.0 version.
File was called fx3setup.exe says it is version 3.0.04506.30 and calls
itself "SFX Setup".
Will try deleting the temp directories.

Thanks,
Dave
