MORE INFORMATION

Known issues in this service pack and how to work around the known issues

• For multiple editions of Visual Studio 2008, Microsoft only supports configurations in which all editions are at the same service pack level. If a computer is running multiple language versions of Visual Studio 2008, multiple editions of Visual Studio 2008, or both, all editions must be at the release level or at the SP1 level to be supported by Microsoft.
• This beta release is not applied if you have Microsoft Silverlight Beta installed in your operating systems.
• The beta release does not update the remote debugger components or the stand-alone profiler unless Visual Studio 2008 is installed on the local computer. After you update Visual Studio 2008 to Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta, you can manually copy the updated version of these components to computers that do not have Visual Studio 2008 installed.
