Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is here

Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 has been released. Get it here. Note that if you are installing the thing on Vista you should explicitly use “Run As Administrator” assuming UAC is turned on (yes, I am back on UAC). Yet, it doesn’t work for me. Perhaps there is a problem with SP1 beta which I installed before?

BTW, Isn’t this a perfect descriptive message?

There is also a link to Visual Studio 2005 SP1 Update for Windows Vista Beta (I guess the update is beta and not for Vista Beta) but it isn’t yet functional.

UPDATE (16.12.2006): Yes, it was SP1 beta. Andrej has posted SP1 beta uninstall instructions here.

  1. Haven’t had any problems installing on my no-VS2005SP1Beta-installed (Vista) box. With UAC turned off, works fine, although when VS2005 is launched, you get a note about running with administrative permisions and required SP1 Vista Update. Anyway, on my Beta laptop, running SP1 Beta, I got the same message. Now, how do you remove SP1 Beta? 🙂
