I uninstalled vs 2005 w/o first unistalling wssf and guidance tools. Then installed vs 2008 pro. Now I cannot get any component (wssf, guidance ext or toolkit to unistall). All have similiar error:

"An exception occured while unistalling. This exception will be ignored and the uninstall will continue. However, the application might not be fully uninstalled after the uninstall is complete. --> the project factory CSharp is not registered, template C:\Projects\SrvcFact3\...\DataContratModel.vstemplate cannot be installed."

Then all uninstalls rollback.

I moved the whole C:\Projects\SrvcFact3 to another location, and re-ran install with repair which recreated all the files and directories for the wssf-modeling edition, but no templates or extensions or guidance shoed up in vs2008 pro.

The current version of WSSF (November 2007) does not work with VS2008.
Any time soon there will be a public CTP compatible with VS2008.
