MS Deploy RC1 Install ... Odd!

In upgrading from MS Deploy Beta1 to RC1, I found an undocumented oddity which could stump you for who knows how long.

If you install the RC without first uninstalling the beta, the Web Deployment Agent Service refuses to start. From the command line, "net start msdepsvc" returns

The service did not report an error

And no error is logged in the Event Log either.

The fix? Simple, just go into Programs and Features, select the Web Deployment Tool Release Candidate 1 and choose "Repair".

All fixed.
