    Can you clarify something for me regarding the installation files, their sizes and what they include?
    Automatic Installation (~72 MB)
    Future Installation (~68 MB)

    a) Do we need to install both to get the grid and Docking?
    b) If no, and Future installation contains both all SL plus Grid and doc, then why is the future smaller than Automatic installation?

    Please let me know before I install.

    Hi Ben,

    It seems that the build script of the non-CTP installer failed to clean the Bin folder of the Examples.VB and Examples.CS projects, hence the size difference. The control assemblies and the documentation are the same in both installations. Of course, the non-CTP installation does not contain the GridView and Docking assemblies and examples.

    Sincerely yours,
