VS.NET 2005 – Beta 1 to Beta 2 in 100 minutes

100 minutes – that’s what it took to remove Beta 1 and install Beta 2 on my Fujitsu Laptop (P4 1.7 GHz, 512 MB). I include the full details below :-

Uninstall VS.NET Beta 1 : 10 AM to 10:16 AM (16 mins)
Uninstall MSDN for VS.NET 2005 Beta 1 : 10:16 AM to 10:22 AM (6 mins)
Uninstall VS.NET 2005 Device Emulator : 10:22 AM to 10:23 AM (1 min)
Uninstall VJ# Redistrib Beta 1 : 10:23 AM to 10:24 AM (1 min)
Uninstall .NET SDK Beta 1 : 10:24 AM to 10:27 AM (3 mins)

Install VS.NET Beta 2 : 10:30 AM to 11:23 AM (53 mins)
Install MSDN Beta 2 : 11:24 AM to 11:44 AM (20 mins)

Not bad for something that’s still in Beta 🙂

  1. No kidding. I was pleasantly suprised by how much the installer has improved since VS.NET (where i’d install only at the end of the day, so i could go home and let it take as much of the night as necessary to finish). I installed in a VM, and even with that it was finished amazingly quickly.
