Using VSTO 2005.

We installed the SP1 Beta, installed no problem. The RTM verison of SP1 for Visual Studio 2005 will not install on VSTO 2005.

VSTO is not listed as having an SP release, only Team Ed. and Prof. Was there no SP released for VSTO Does anyone kow any reason for this Especially since we were able to install the beta versionit does not make much sense.

Help

Thanks

ccassino,

I can understand why it appears a little confusing. Let me see if I can help.

According to the SP1 kb article (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx scid=928957), only the following SKUs are affected:

? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System Test Edition
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Architects
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Developers
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Testers
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition
? Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition

As you have noticed, that excludes the VSTO 2005 SKU, because it is entirely distinct from these SKUs you see listed here. I have no privileged information regarding why this was perhaps available in Beta for VSTO but not in RTM.

The good news is that your current VSTO 2005 installation is up-to-date without the sp, although installing the SE portion is a plus.

Best,

jrd

Agreed, I'm wondering the same thing about my version number. I'm wondering whether or not the service pack was even installed because I didn't check it before hand. I'll have to check it against another install (without the service pack).

Sort of confusing... but It does show up in the control panel under add remove programs if you select show updates labeled:

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Architects - ENU Service Pack 1 (KB926601)

Publisher:  Microsoft Corporation

Support Information: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926601 <-------dead link redirects to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx scid=gp;[ln];kberror&style=error&errurl=%2fdefault.aspx%2fkb%2f926601

All must be well and installed if you see it in your control panel... :)

Hello

I too installed the sp1beta in my vsto 2005 and i'm unable to install the rtm sp1. Maybe that's not a big problem because it functions well.

The problem now is that the sql server compact edition 3.1 does not install well, and the sql server compact edition 3.1 VSTools won't install at all.

The install programm SSCE31VSTools-ENU.exe stops with the same warning as the SP1. The Warning is in the dutch language but sounds something like this: the program you try to update is not available.

Does the SQL compact edition not work with vsto2005

According to http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb219484.aspx you need the SP1 for VS

Is there a workaround because i want to rewrite a big MSAccess/VBA desktop program in VS/SQL compact

Best regards
