Any word on a Avalon/Indigo CTP that's compatible with Beta2?

    Now that Beta 2 has been out for awhile can we expect to see a new CTP drop of Avalon/Indigo soon? I'm dying to try this out in a more stable environment Smiley

    Agreed. I spent all weekend trying to get it running on a laptop (The old CTP for VS.NET and the Avalon/Indigo). Still not successful...

    I'd rather wait for the VS.NET Beta 2.

    I have Beta2 but it's giving me a lot of problems when I try to install.  Then, after I get it running (partly), I try installing the WinFX CTP and it craps out.  So, I'm not sure what to do now...

    I don't think that Beta 2 is compatible with the latest WinFX CTP.

    Well, for me, Beta 2 doesn't work.  Period.  GUI front-end design mode does not work...

    Beta 2 of Visual Studio SKU's is not compatible with the March 2005 CTP of Avalon and Indigo. Check my blog, I've gotten word off of the newsgroups that a CTP drop compatible with Beta 2 of Whidbey will be availabled by "May 42nd" although they do expect it sometime in May, and not June.

    When we finish a Beta or a CTP, they not only go out to you but to all of the internal teams building on Whidbey. They need time to integrate the new bits, make any changes that are needed, run all their tests and put together their own drop for you guys.

    It takes some time so be patient Smiley

    So, does that make you a "centurion" of CTPs/Betas?
