I'm running VS 2008 Version 9.0.21022.8 RTM. This is being run on a MacBook Pro using VMware Fusion Version 2.0(116369).
The problem(s) that I've encountered are as follows:
Creating a simple WPF panel with Tabs, when clicking from one tab to another the designer displays the Tab that I'm clicking off from, not the Tab I'm wanting to work on. The only way that I have found to actually be able to work on the xmal for that Tab is to set the Common Properties.IsSelected to checked. This has to be done each time I navigate to a new Tab. The xaml.cs does reflect the move from one Tab to another.
At a user group meeting it was suggested that VS 2008 SP1 may fix this. Okay, sounds reasonable, which leads me to the next problem.

VS 2008 SP1 fails to install with the following error / Temp\Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 according to the installation log:
SP1\Web\dotnetfx35setup.exe) failed with 0x80070643 - Fatal error during installation.
 according to the Installation Log:

Hi,

this is a know bug. The .net 3.5 Sp1 bootstrapper can't download the required files. Try the full installer from here:

Goodluck,
