Before leaving last night, I uninstalled all of the appropriate bits, and then fired off the installation for VS 2008 SP1.  I had heard it took a couple of hours, so I wanted to let it do its work while I was gone.

This morning, I arrived to find that the installation had paused, waiting for me to close down Word, Outlook and Internet Explorer.  So now I’ve closed those apps down and resumed the installation.

So, when I cannot use Office or IE, what should I be doing?  I don’t have Firefox installed, so I cannot even browse with that.

Before I closed IE, I saw that Ayende has already posted a Connect bug for SP1.  I’ll tell you what, it seems like he should be a Beta tester for every release and service pack—he always seems to find a way to break something!
