VS 2005 Diagnostic and Uninstall Tool
We also plan to post a troubleshoot tool soon. Please stay tuned and check Aaron's blog or my blog. The diagnostic and uninstall tool offers the following feature.
1. Automates VS2005 uninstall instructions here . This uninstalls all VS2005 Beta and CTPs.
2. Auto diagnostic known issue (current 6 known issues are authored)
3. Faster tool/application development using common search/diagnostic framework
Thanks to Andrey Zvyagilskiy, Aaron Stebner, Peter Giffin, Bret Grinslade, Brian Moore, Samir Shergill and June Low who made this possible.
- Uninstall utility uninstalls all editions such as Express, Profession, Standard, Team system client (not server piece), SQL Express and WinFX (only Beta1) together.
- Don't run this tool on the machine where RTM SQL 2005 is installed as it will uninstall RTM SQL components shared between SQL Express and Enterprise edition.
- There is no plan to make diagnostic tool as an officially supported Microsoft tool at this point.
