Hi,
Just wonder if you had any pre-release version of VS 2008 (I mean "beta version") or any VS 2008 Express Edition installed previously.

I am about to install VS 2008 Professional Edition on a vista machine, but the machine already has VS 2008 C# and C++ express editions installed which also included .NET 3.5 as well as SQL 2005 express edition.
I wonder if I need to uninstall them first prior to VS 2008 Prof installation.
Thanks,
Jimm
