On Tuesday I blogged about the recent release of the ASP.NET MVC 3 RC build. You can read more about it here.
This post is a quick follow-up post that discusses a few
installation issues that we’ve seen people run into - and how to fix them:
ASP.NET MVC 3 RC and C#/VB Async CTP
Two weeks ago the VS languages team released
an early preview of some cool language improvements to VB and C# that we
are working on for asynchronous programming. Unfortunately it isn’t
possible to have both the Async CTP and the ASP.NET MVC 3 RC installed on the
same machine at the same time. You instead need to choose one or the
other right now – installing both will cause problems.
If you’ve already installed the Async CTP and want to
install the ASP.NET MVC 3 RC, then you need to use Add/Remove Programs and
uninstall the Async CTP. Once it is uninstalled, then you can safely
install the ASP.NET MVC 3 RC build on your machine without problems.
If you’ve already installed both the Async CTP and ASP.NET
MVC 3 RC on the same machine, then you will likely experience issues in VS with
debugging (and potentially other things) not working. To fix this, go to
Add/Remove Programs and uninstall both the ASP.NET MVC 3 RC build (including
the VS Tools components for it) and the Async CTP. Once you’ve uninstalled both
your machine will be back to a clean state and working fine. You can then
choose to install either the Async CTP or ASP.NET MVC 3 RC and it will work
Update: Drew Miller from the ASP.NET team has a good blog
post here that covers how to uninstall all the pieces of ASP.NET MVC 3 RC.
Razor Intellisense and Resharper
ReSharper is a popular product from JetBrains that enhances
Visual Studio's intellisense and code editing features. If you have
ReSharper installed and want to take advantage of the Razor intellisense
support we added to the ASP.NET MVC 3 RC build, please read this blog post from JetBrains which discusses ways to
use them together today.
NuPack/NuGet Schema and Feed Updates
We’ve made some schema and feed modifications to NuGet since
the original preview release of it that will prevent you from updating packages
that were added with the original preview build. When updating to the
ASP.NET MVC 3 RC, you’ll need to delete your existing packages and re-add them
to your project to account for this. You can do this by deleting the
packages from disk, and then run the install-package command again.
