Feb CU installation issues...

Not sure if any of you have had issues installing the Feb CU, but I've come across an issue that I thought I should share.

The installation worked fine, however the wizard failed. After hours of investigating why it failed, it turned out that a web.config was set to read only. After changing it, the wizard worked.

If you want to install the WSS and the MOSS Feb CU (I recommend you do, it fixes a lot of content deployment issues), here's the steps:
  • Run the WSS CU setup
  • Restart the server
  • Run the MOSS CU setup
  • Run the configuration wizard
If you are only using WSS, you can skip the step of installing the MOSS CU.

Internet Explorer 8

IE8 if finally out. I recommend everyone download it. I'm playing around with it now, and I like some of the new functionality like the way the search box works.

Go to to download it.
