If you attended a MSDN Events seminars seminar this week (on October 12th or 14th) and you are experiencing problems installing Visual Studio 2005 beta 1 refresh from the companion attendee DVD-ROM that you received there, refer to the additional installation instructions that have been posted to the DVD-ROM errata Web page. There is a link to this errata Web page already in the menus of the DVD-ROM.

If you attended a MSDN Events seminar the previous week (on October 5th or 7th), which includes the ones that I presented in Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada, it will still be a couple of weeks before you can expect to receive the current MSDN Events companion attendee DVD-ROM. We'll provide a notice with it to remind you to visit this same errata Web page as well.

Do you want to obtain one of these MSDN Events attendee DVD-ROMs with Visual Studio 2005 beta 1 refresh, the updated complete Patterns & Practices library, the presentation slides, code samples and videos of the topics that we are currently covering at our MSDN Events, and a whole lot more developer resources? All you have to do is attend one of the free MSDN Events seminars that we will be presenting all across the U.S. through December. Check out what cities we will be going to.
