A completely awesome message box

The July 2007 CTP's of the Guidance Automation Extensions horks up Visual Studio 2008. This guy has a fix and says "it's an easy one". I didn't care; I have nothing invested in these tools so I just attempted to uninstall it. However, while doing that, I got this ... less than helpful message box:

Turns out you have to uninstall Enterprise Library >= 3.0 before uninstalling the GAX/GAT. Did that and was able to uninstall.

I found that there is now a February 2008 release (not CTP, get it here). So, I pressed my luck and installed those. I guess it works. At least it didn't blow up when I tried to create a new web project. Here's the order of events that I did:

  1. Uninstall EntLib 3.1
  2. Uninstall GAT July 2007
  3. Uninstall GAX July 2007
  4. Re-install EntLib 3.1
  5. Install GAX February 2008
  6. Install GAT February 2008

Remember that the GAT is dependent on the GAX.
