How to clean-up my PC from Visual Studio 2008 Beta1?

    My current problem is - I can't install VS2008 Beta2 on my PC.

    I had a Beta1 before and unistalled it quite successfully.
    But now I can't install Beta2. Installation fails during installation of "Web Designer Tools". No further information in installation logs.

    I've tried to uninstall "Visual Stodio Web Designer Tools" (I don't remember a name) from "Add/remove programs". But it fails too and says "Instrallation is corrupted".

    Does anybody saw this problem? Is there any tool to clean-up
     my PC like it was for VS2005 betas?

    May be it happens because of Office2007 or "Expression Web"?
    Have no idea. I have another PC where VS2008 never was installed and VS2008B2 was installed without any problems.

    Yeah, I found that doesn't work at all well. Reformat and reinstall is probably the best option.

    Not for me, unfortunately. Sad

    A word of advice (too late, I know): never install beta software (especially not of something as complex as Visual Studio) on a system if you're not willing to reformat afterwards.

    Eah, I know. But I'm some sort of optimist. Everytime installing MS Betas I hope what in this time MS did better job than last time... Cool
