I've trying to install the WCF REST Starter Kit Preview 2 from the MSI provided on codeplex.
However after the install has spent plenty of time seemingly doing stuff and reporting a successful install it doesn't appear to have done anything. There is no new folder in Programs Files and the Visual Studio Component installer doesn't launch so there
are no new templates added in My Documents.
I've tried this on my Server 2008 box and an XP Pro machine. Both machines have the latest installs of VS 2008 SP1, .NET 3.5 etc.
Anyone come across this or got any advice?
msi install fail

Are you sure you are installing the Preview 2 (released March 12) and not the Preview 1. There is no Visual Studio Component installer for Preview 2. Also, the Starter Kit Preview 2 will install to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft WCF REST", or for 64-bit "C:\Program
Files (x86)\Microsoft WCF REST". Are you sure that there is nothing there after the install?

Paul, you are quite right, I must have been following old advice relating to Preview 1. The files are exactly where you said they would be.
