I've downloaded and followed the instructions for installing the latest CTP. The install however exits with the following error message:

The project factory web is not registered, template C:\Program Files\Microsoft Service Factory V3\Guidance Package\Templates\Projects\ASMXHost\Host.vstemplate cannot be installed.

I have VS 2005 SP1 and VS 2008 Beta 2 installed on the same machine. Any ideas?

Currently we're not supporting VS 2008. Many things changed between the 2005 and 2008 releases, notably the DSLs.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.

Please do not be sorry; is there a work around? I have the same setup and problem. Can I use vs 2005? How can I install this. I am getting kicked out when I try to install the enterprise library 3.1 with error : unable to load one or more of the requested types.

Currently I don't have any workarounds for running on 2008. Largely this is a resource constraint. We may well at least investigate this in the near future - as 2008 gets closer to RTM. The Servie Factory CTP drops should install against VS 2005, Pro and above. EntLib 3.1 and the latest releases of GAT/GAX should also install against 2005.

I you send me your exact setup I can try and verify with our test team if they saw any issues on the same configuration.
