Does the FULL installation only work on VSTS or does
it also work on VS Professional Edition?

Thanx in advance.

I believe that the features that you will miss when using Professional edition will be:
- Unit tests that we provide for the Reference Implementation and the App Blocks
- Support on the guidance package to add a module project + a test project. Note that this is optional, so you should not check that if you are running under Professional.

Did you have any problem installing the factory?

I'm using the factory on Professional edition at the moment, and it works fine - minus the unit test projects obviously.

If I click on this install I get the following error "Invalid drive G:\"

I've had this problem with various installers, and it was because the My Documents folder was mapped to a remote drive by the company I was working with, and I was logged in as a local only user.

I solved it by using the SUBST command line to map the drive somewhere locally while the installer ran.

A long shot I know - but thought it worth mentioning.

Thanx all for your anwsers.

The solution for installing de RI was that VS default project location
was localized on G:\Projects. After I set to D:\Projects the install
worked ok.
