As Borek said, excellent list. But when trying to install sp1 for vs2008 I get an error which I have not found a solution to. And it states "SPInstaller has stopped working". And I now find myself getting this error whenever I try to run an install which is triggered by SPInstaller. Any ideas??
Many thanks...//Mike
