OK, that sucks. Installation of Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2005 is dirty like shit...
- It takes a LOT of time and there is no way to know how much left.
- It does not check for available disk space, so I ran out of disk space several times since installation writes data like crazy. At the end it frees much of that space so I guess it has temporary both versions on disk or something like that. It writes and deletes several Gigabytes.
- At certain points it takes too much memory and performs paging.
- It takes like 2 hours and most of the time it runs taking constantly 100% CPU without any chance to do anything with computer, so you have to wait or go to sleep (until you discover that you are out of disk space)... I wonder how many CPUs around the world will be burned by this service pack ?
BTW, Visual Studio 2003 Service Pack 1 has the same behavior. Looks like the same guy did both ? Idiots.
