    For those of us running the PP2 beta, do you know if we need to uninstall that in order to get the official version via update?

    Now appears to have been removed from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894199

    Maybe iStream comes in PP2? Coincidence they both show up on test pages in the same week? Maybe?

    I have about had it with updates that are supposed to show up and don’t. It’s almost as much fun as error codes that mean nothing and link to a page that has no answers. Thanks, Microsoft, for hiring a guy to give errors a code but no solution.
