      Hello Chris,

      I loved this video on using VSeWSS with VS 2008 and customizing SharePoint!  You did a wonderful job.  I have been using SharePoint since 2001 and back in 2005 I worked for Microsoft PSS in Charlotte on the Dev Messaging and Collaboration team doing SharePoint v2.0 support.  Actually, I think I was the last support engineer in Charlotte to work with SharePoint development before they moved most of the support to Bangalore.

      I have a few questions:

      1.  Do you have any examples or help on how you created the ContosoThemeSite project you imported into this demo?  I am trying to create a branded theme and am having a little difficulty.  Anything you can provide will be a great help.

      2.  I used the instructions in the Contoso Sample Setup.rtf document to uninstall SQL Server Compact 3.5 (using the MSI from the link provided) and it failed saying this is not a valid MSI image for this task.  The same with uninstalling SQL Server Compact 3.5 Tools.  Are these link correct?  Am I going to face any problems since I did NOT do these steps?

      Thanks again for a superb demonstration!  I look forward to accomplishing a lot with the new version of SharePoint.
