How do I remove the steel icon in the VS.NET 2005 splash after I
uninstall
it?

On the splash screen icon. This failed to remove in 0.7 but has (I hope)
been fixed in 0.75. Is that the version you used?

A fix for this is to run the IDE setup from the command prompt (once
you’ve uninstalled Ruby In Steel) in your Visual Studio directory. That
is:

devenv /setup

As I say, to the best of our knowledge, this should not be a problem
with the current release.

Regarding the above… we are not aware of this problem. We would need
more detailed information to help us to work out what is causing this.
I’d be grateful if you would contact us direct at support (at)
sapphiresteel (dot) com and we’ll try to figure out how we can solve
this.

Building the same project works with 0.7.0.73.

“Install failed: An exception occurred in the OnBeforeInstall event
handler of RM.Steel.SteelInstaller.”

Again, if you will contact us, we’ll try to find the problem. We will
need a few details in order to diagnose it. My best guess is that this
is either related to the version of Visual Studio you have (VS 2005
Standard or above is required) or - just possibly? - it may be related
to some non-standard directory locations or names. If you can contact us
at “support (at) sapphiresteel (dot) com” we’ll gladly go through all
the relevant details to try to solve this.
