I also installed the RTW 2.1. But it seems a debug build.
Do we get a release build soon or does everyone needs to build the release mode themselfs? I prefer to download the release build instead of installing Visual Studio Express for Web.
(I don't know if there is a lot of #if DEBUG which slows down the process, but for me as an admin the sql performance list at the bottom is not pleasant)
I believe that including debug build into binary distribution is nothing else than a mistake. Unless a sounding reason for doing so is specified in big red letters near the download link, at least.
Considering strange errors I got using that distribution I personally suppose that there could also be some mix of the versions of the binaries in it.
However, I do not think that changing to release build may affect SQL server performance, unless different queries are used for debug and release code, which is highly unlikely.
