I meant, I *cannot* get updates for VS 2008.

BIDS did install for me following those directions, and as far as I can see VS2008 sp1 beta is properly installed. However, as I reported in the link below, I can get updates for VS 2008: Help, Check for Updates from within VS2008 sends me to the Mac products site.

This happens on German Vista x64 SP1 with VS2008 SP1 Beta (English and German) too. Will uninstalling the mentioned update KB945149 break VS2008 SP1 Beta or can I install SP1 beta again after installing SQL 2008 BIDS RC0 (also German) ? Can both even be installed on the same system?

Teo -

If machine already has a patch from one product installed (in this case VS) and setup for the other product is launched the other patch fails. The problem is SQL should have picked the same VS SP1 Beta1 patches as VS shipped then this will not be an issue. It is important that we make sure when VS SP1 RTM for Katmai RTM is consumed SQL ships the same patches as VS.

To workaround this issue:
1. Go to Add/Remove Programs
2. Select Show updates
3. Remove VS Shell update KB945140
4. Install SQL BIDS

We are investigating a long term fix.
