Erm, I could be just being incredibly dumb but I can't seem to set my include paths in the Visual C++ Net 2005 Beta: Anyone know what could be up, I kinda think this is mission critical to the application's use!

Note: For Beta 2, you cannot set the Visual C++ Directories in the Options dialog of Visual C++ Express Edition. To work around this issue, you can update the Visual C++ Directories by modifying the VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config file located in the \vc\vcpackages subdirectory of the Visual C++ Express Edition install location. Please make sure that you also delete the file "vccomponents.dat" located in the "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VCExpress\8.0" if it exists before restarting Visual C++ Express Edition.

Issue: Cannot set VC++ Directories in the Options dialog of Visual C++ Express Edition
Details: The VC++ Directories page on the Options dialog does not have a list box for viewing and modifying the directories used during a build. Consequently, it is not possible to modify the build directories using the IDE UI.
Workaround: C++ Directories can be added, removed or changed by modifying the VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config file located in the .\vc\vcpackages subdirectory of the Visual C++ Express Edition install location in a text editor, saving the changes and restarting the Visual C++ Express Edition.
