As you probably heard the Visual Studio 2010 RC is currently available for MSDN subscribers! You can download it from here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dd582936.aspx. General public release is slated for Wed.

The Web Development Tools Team has setup a DL that we would like you to use to send us direct feedback on anything web development related for this RC.

The DL is: vsweb@microsoft.com

Once you have had a chance to use the product please send us feedback on your overall experience with our product. The more details you can provide the better.

Also, feel free to shoot us a mail if:

  1. You encounter a bug or issue.
  2. You have general feedback, suggestions or ideas on our web tools product.

If you do encounter a bug please send us a clear set of repro steps. Any of the following items will also help us reproduce the bug more easily:   

  1. For crashes, hangs - obtain a crash dump as described here: http://blogs.msdn.com/mikhailarkhipov/archive/2006/07/25/678308.aspx
  2. For hard to describe bugs capture a video of the bug in action.
  3. Send us your machine configuration (OS, 64/32 bit, RAM, etc.).
  4. Are you running in a Virtual Machine environment (Virtual PC, Hyper-V, VMWare, etc) or Remote Desktop?
  5. What profile are you using (Tools->Import/Export Settings? General, Web Development, Code Only, VB, C#, etc.
  6. How many projects are you using? How many files?
  7. Is your solution located on a network share?

  • I have the previous NON-BETA version installed; do I need to uninstall this first?

  • Hi Anthony,

    If you are referring to VS2008 - you do NOT need to uninstall it first.  VS2010 will install side-by-side with VS2008 and VS2005.

  • What was the last release build before this one? Wasn't there one other release build after the beta?

  • Hi Anthony,

    There were some SLCTP builds of VS2010 that were done between Beta2 and RC which a small number of people had access to.  If you had one of those installed, then yes you need to uninstall it before installing the RC build.

  • ohhhhh I am so mad at this tools   it keeps giving some message contact support the installer is not working.   well I am support and the only one on this computer so how do i fix it with such a lame message.    there is now clue to where it installed   a log where what happened is.    

    the repair and uninstall both fail   I cannot delete it bacause i have no clue where it is.

    please think about what you are doing when you program this stuff.

  • Hi, Frank; Sorry that you're encountering problems.  Could you send me details about what message you're seeing at Van.Kichline@Microsoft.com?  I'll try my best to help.
