VS2005 SP1 RTM + SP1 Update Beta

After installing the RTM version of Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2005, this is what will greet you the first time you run VS on Windows Vista:

It references the “SP1 Update” for VS2005 to make it run best on Vista. Note that even with that, the advice is still to run with administrative permissions. I have said before that you can get away with many things by not running VS elevated, but to play it on the safe side do follow the explicit advice given.

You can get a Beta of the SP1 Update for Vista here soon.

BTW, we are all familiar with the term “RTM” and we are all used to “SP”, but this “SP1 Update for Vista” is a new one. It made me smile but, if you think about it, what else could they have called it?
