Currently running VS2008 SP1 and .NET 3.5 SP1 - do either of these really need updating ?

Hotfix for VS2008 SP1 Available

In VS2008 SP1 our team added a significant new feature: live semantic analysis of open files (or background squiggles as we called it internally).  Unfortunately, soon after release we found a few small issues with the release.  They are:

Incorrect errors when you open a solution with breakpoints in .aspx.cs files.
Incorrect errors regarding conversions of constants in rare cases.
An issue importing metadata from some non-C# assemblies.
Some timing issues where errors would appear and then disappear during typing or file/solution opening.
We spent some time analyzing the issues, and weve come up with a hotfix to address them.  If youre seeing any issues where you get live semantic errors that you dont expect, please download this fix and try it out.

Visual studio update site...

it seems to look like a VS bug try any parallel installation of vs 2005 and check if the web reference adds in it gives error or not.

thanks ...

The project opens okay and the web reference is there. However, it is when doing Update Web Reference that the message appears. This is the same before and after applying the HotFix you detailed.
