All about Async/Await, System.Threading.Tasks, System.Collections.Concurrent, System.Linq, and more…
Here are known correctness bugs as of our December 2007 CTP release:
The CLR Team has been working with the Parallel Computing Platform Team for the past year on some innovative
> The setup for Parallel Extensions may fail on Windows
> Server 2008 64-bit.
It seems that it may fail also on other systems. I've got Vista SP1 (some test build) 32bit + final versions of VS 2008 and .NET 3.5, but setup still says: .NET 3.5 is required. I've tried reinstalling .NET 3.5 - it didn't help.
Anyway something like:
msiexec /a file.msi /qb
... worked, but for some strange reason InstallDir become Z:\PFiles instead of C:\Program Files - STRANGE!
I guess it would be nice to have just a plain old zip file for CTPs like this one.
Thanks, Witold. We've heard a few reports of this, and in all cases we've investigated, it's been the result of a previous version of VS2008/.NET 3.5 installed where the uninstall wasn't done cleanly (i.e. some remnants of previous bits still existed on the machine for some reason). Did you have a previous version installed?
Regardless, I'm sorry for the troubles, and I'm glad you were able to start using the CTP even without the MSI succeeding. We'll continue to investigate the problem.
"Did you have a previous version installed?"
Yes. I've used VS 2008 Beta 2 for a while.
I can also supply you with any logs or do any tests that would be helpfull to solve those problems... Just drop me a mail: ja[at]hope[dot]art[dot]pl
