Note to Self Re: .NET 3.5 SP1 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Installation

When installing Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 first.

The Visual Studio 2008 SP1 installer tries to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 as part of its installation and seemed to hang my Windows XP SP2 machine during installation. Canceling the installation seemed to do nothing. I had to kill the process.

  1. I did .net 3.5 sp1 first, and 2008 sp1 installer still hangs. It must not be related to .net.
