Thanks

I just wanted to say thanks for the speed at which you're now releasing new
EAP builds. It's almost faster than I can install/uninstall them! Great stuff.

Hello Chris,

presently, installer is indeed a bit slow, we're investigating why. Hopefully,
it will not be a bottleneck
in the EAP process, and frequency of publishing new builds will not match
the speed of their (un)installation :)

One thing that would make the uninstall/install process faster/easier is if
we could simply install new builds over the previous ones :)
Can't the installer be made to automatically run the uninstaller first?

Anyway, it's nothing major (for the EAP :). I just jumped on the occasion to
mention it :)

Hello Lionel,

actually it can detect and uninstall the previous build.

The problem is that we don't advertise this ability, as there is a rarely
reproducable problem
in an upgrade installation scenario: sometimes installer forgets to install
necessary assemblies into GAC
causing add-in load failure or other problems. This happens approx in 10%
of installations here,
and we're trying to figure out how it can happen. But in most cases upgrade
installation
runs OK.

Ah ok, good to know :)
I'll give it a try with 225 then, while keeping this in mind.

Thanks for the info :)

Ditto - you're fixing bugs fast as well.  225 is looking way more stable
than 224 was.  Perf in large files is getting much better as well.  Keep
rocking.

Quick addendum to this.

So, yesterday I tried installing 225 over 223, without uninstalling first.
Everything went smoothly, the uninstaller ran, followed by the installer, no
problems there.

Afterwards though, not so great :)
VS (2005) started popping up an error window on startup, though everything
kept working, except for the debugger. This one was unusable. VS was
correctly going in debug mode, but nothing happened then. It was not even
possible to return to the normal mode without closing and reopening VS.
Resharper itself didn't display any strange behaviour.

So I uninstalled 225, reinstalled it, and everything was back to normal.


Today I tried installing 226 over 224 (225 was at home, 226 here at work).
The installation went smoothly and everything seems to be working just fine,
including the debugger.

I'll try 226 over 225 at home over the week-end (or 227+, given the current
frequency of new releases :)
