Thanks for documenting this - we'll try and get the instructions on the express init page cleaned up to reflect this. > Might be something that needs to be allowed for in the EVS install process > I guess.

The non-express setup already does this. The aim of the express setup was to have as little 'interruption' as possible, but we'll try and find a way of achieving both. There are two updates in the pipeline: 1) CM Suite 2008 R2 (includes bug fixes and evaluation guide/documentation) 2) CM Suite 2009 R1 (includes improved migration tools and support for VSTS clients). These are both 'almost' complete and just waiting some finishing before we can release them, but hopefully they will appear quite soon. Regards, Arthur Barrett
