Getting Community Technology Previews to work together

CTPs can be pretty frustrating, as can working with any beta software that has dependancies
on other Beta software (Matt, remember the BizTalk JDP?). Channel
have just published a tool that shows the dependancies of different versions
of the CTPs currently available, specifically around .Net v2.0, Avalon, WinFX, SQL
Server 2005 and the stuff Microsoft is currently spewing. Worth a look if you’ve spent
hours playing with installations that go wrong or are exhibiting one of the symptons

Symptoms of CTP Madness include:

  • Excessive use of VPC images (7 or more on given box)
  • Two or more machines in a zombie state due to install\uninstall issues
  • Regular (weekly or even daily) machine flattening
