I have downloaded and installed the visual C++ 2008 beta1. But in windows update there is visual studio 2005 and when I registered it, I was registered the 2005 version! Why it¡¯s so

Hello

Sorry I cannot quite follow your question here. You download Visual Studio Orcas Beta 1, hopefully that installed and worked correctly. Then you went to Windows Update and it wanted to update Visual Studio 2005 ¨C so I assume you have VS 2005 installed on the machine as well. Not sure what you mean by ¡°when I registered it¡±, registered it where/how exactly. And when you ask ¡°Why it¡¯s so¡± I am not exactly sure what ¡°it¡± you mean.

Thanks

Damien

Thanks a lot for the answer.

They are two different things:

1- When I registered the program (help menu->register)

I received:

Subject: Thank you for registering Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition!

From: Microsoft (confirm@profile.microsoft.com)

But I think it should be 2008 in subject and not 2005

2- When I go to windows update in select by product they are windows xp, office 2007, SQL server and Visual studio 2005. But it shouldn¡¯t be visual studio 2005 because after the last time I installed windows, I never installed visual studio 2005 and just I installed the visual studio 2008 beta1 c++ express edition.

Are you convinced yet that nobody knows the answer These kind of support sites don't get updated until the Beta turns RTM. You won't get automatic updates for Beta versions. Why is this important

Thank you for the answer. I know it is beta. But when I installed visual c# 2005 beta and I registered it¡¯ I received a message which told me I installed the c# 2005 and it was not about 2003. I thought it should be like that. And about updating it, I know it¡¯s in the beta period and it may have some problems or no updates. I don¡¯t know why the product ¡®visual studio 2005¡¯ has added in my update list.

Orcas uses the same installer (images and product features blurbs and all) as was used for vs 2005.

I image that once they get closer to release they will do something custom for 2008.
