I started an installation of Visual studio Orcas beta 1 last night just before I went to sleep and also set the alarm for 3 AM so I could wake up and hit [Next] when it prompts me to install the documentation. Well guess what? I woke up and found that Vista had rebooted and there was a nice balloon tip on the lower right of my screen telling me some updates got installed and so it rebooted. Holy crap! There was a freaking installation going on, damnit! Has this crap happened to anyone else too?
The good thing is I restarted the installation and decided to stay up for 30 minutes to make sure it was all good. That turned out to be a good move because the setup paused and asked me to kill the machine debug manager (no idea why that was running) which I did. I went to sleep and woke up a while ago to find the installation complete. Apparently documentation got auto-installed and thus I didn’t have to click [Next] for that. But I still cannot believe that the OS was stupid enough to do a reboot while an installation was running – how screwed up an idea is that anyway! :grrr:
