I installed VS 2008 beta2 on my machine a couple of days agoand immediately ran into the version problem with my AJAX-enabled websites (hosted on this machine).
Not knowing that this was the problem (it's not mentioned on the MS page where it *does* say you have to run a particular script to leave your AJAX-websites working!), I did a system restore to before I installed the product.
My websites still didn't work.
I then looked at the forums and discovered the version problem, and decided to undo my system restore, and hand-reconfigure my web.config.
Still no joy...
I also don't know what state my machine's installation is now in, as I have uninstalled .NET 3.5 (pre-release version) as instructed by the install of VS 2008 B2, only to find that this product installs .NET 3.5 (pre-release version)...
I've been fightnig with this now for two evenings, and want to get my websites back flying. I may well have to start again from scratch - which I do NOT really want to do!
I think that there should be a warrning on the download page which mentions this problem - Saying "run this script" gave me the (false) impression that running the script would mean that things would simply work "out of the box"...
Maybe I've just completely screwed up my installation?
