WinFS Beta 1

Post by casablanca »

Does anyone have WinFS beta 1 around? I know it was released to MSDN, and they probably got rid of it already, since it was so long ago...

I take no responsibility for the content of the above website. I just found the link to this particular file somewhere else.

UPDATE: I have not ran the exe, nor will most likely ever. However, to get the exe file, please rename winfs to winfs.rar. You will then be able to view its contents.

Uh oh...Problemo!

It seems to be looking for Beta 2 of the .Net Framework 2.0, which was current when WinFS Beta 1 came out - the final version is 2.0.50727. Has anyone got the version of the Framework that it's asking for, or alternatively is there a way of faking the version to it? Where exactly is it getting the version number of the installed version of the Framework - it must be a particular file or regkey surely? If we knew that, we could maybe fake the version number?

I found .NET 2.0 Beta 2, it can be found here
However, there has to be some other way other than uninstalling the current version and installing this one...

Ah cool - odd that they still offer that file! I'm only trying this in a virtual machine so it doesn't really matter about using that beta.
