Note: If you already have FxCop 1.36 Beta 2 installed, please uninstall it first before you install FxCop 1.36. Otherwise, you may see an error when you install FxCop 1.36 on top of FxCop 1.36 Beta 2.
If you accidentally install FxCop 1.36 without uninstalling FxCop 1.36 Beta 2, please go to Add/Remove program to uninstall FxCop 1.36, and reinstall FxCop 1.36.
[EDIT] Note: FxCop 1.36 RTM shipped with additional tracing turned on. This can make the FxCop output harder to read. To turn tracing off, edit the FxCop.exe.config or FxCopCmd.exe.config files in the FxCop install directory. Find the line that contains <add name="Trace" value="2" /> and change the "2" to "0".
