Known issues

Issue 1
Assume that you uninstall one of the updates that are installed as part of this update. In this situation, you experience one of the following known issues:
  • If you uninstall update 2495593, the Visual Studio toolbox support for State Machine is removed.
  • If you uninstall update 2599652, the .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta target framework and reference assemblies are removed. Therefore, IntelliSense and compilations for the .Net Framework 4.0.3 Beta features and for Workflow State Machine Designer are regressed.
  • If you uninstall update 2599651, the runtime components that are required by .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta-based applications are removed, and the .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta-based applications will not run correctly.
Issue 2
Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta application that uses the new State Machine feature.
  • You drag a State Machine activity from the toolbox.

In this scenario, the green start circle icon no longer appears in the designer.  Additionally, the green start circle icon is replaced by a plain square start box.

Note This is a minor user interface issue and does not affect the functionality of the .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta.  


Issue 3
Consider the following scenario:
  • You install the .NET Framework 4 Beta- Design-Time Update for Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and create a new application.
  • You create a new .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta Workflow project.

In this scenario, a validation error occurs. For example, you receive the following error message that states that the BeforeInitializeComponent component cannot be found: 
'BeforeInitializeComponent' is not a member of … …

Notes
  • This issue does not affect the functionality of the .NET Framework 4.0.3 Beta.
  • Towork around this issue, build the project. After you build the project, you will no longer receive the validation error.
