Indigo setup on Vista Beta1
I got Windows
Vista Beta1 through MSDN
subscription and decided to upgrade my Windows
The Sys-admins in my company were prompt to help me configure that. I got
tempted to setup Windows Communication Framework (codename Indigo)
on this machine. So I tried installing Visual
Studio 2005 Beta2. I was expecting a smooth VS installation but history
repeats itself (different manifestation) and I got this error:
[09/01/05,17:50:30] MSXML 6.0 Parser:  Error code 2 for this component means "The system cannot find the file specified.
[09/01/05,17:50:30] MSXML 6.0 Parser:  Component MSXML 6.0 Parser returned an unexpected value.
[09/01/05,17:50:30] MSXML 6.0 Parser:  Return from system messaging: The system cannot find the file specified.

[09/01/05,17:50:39] VS70pgui:  DepCheck indicates Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition Beta 2 - ENU was not attempted to be installed.
Trying to install with multiple component combinations did not help at all. I
for any solutions but nothing on Vista so finally filed a bug.
This morning I was excited to see a workaround
in the bug report. I tried it and boom, it worked!
IIS is already installed part of Vista, so I'm just excited to start playing with Indigo samples now ...
