On néw Vista-Notebook with Home Premium I Installed Orcas Beta 1. Everything worked.
I upgraded to Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 (complete uninstall and new install of VS).
Everything worked.
I upgraded Vista Home Premium to Vista Unltimate.
I can't compile any project in VS 2008 Beta 2.
I always get this error message

Error    1    .NET Framework 2.0 update not found. The win32manifest will not be embedded.    ConsoleApplication1

According to Windows Update my Windows is absolutly ok. The last Security Update for .Net Framework 2 (KB929916) is installed.

Hi all

I have the same Error with VS2008 V. 9.0.21022.8 RTM.
Uninstal and reinstalling did not help...

I have also the same problem with the RTM version. I had Vista Home Premium, then I upgraded to Vista Ultimate and then I installed VS 2008 RTM first time, and now I'm getting the same error.

Update to previously suggested workaround - it doesn't work after all!

This problem appears to occur if the installation of Vista has not been patched with the hotfix described in KB929916. This might be the case if automatic updates are disabled or if the particular hotfix did not install properly. The hotfix can be downloaded and installed individually from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=CBC9F3CF-C3C3-45C4-82E3-E11398BC2CD2&displaylang=en
