The Stumblings of an IT Manager ...2 days before we go live and you want WHAT....?

Trying to work my way through successfully installing VS 2008 (Visual Studio Team System) on Windows 7 64 bit.  So far, not much luck getting it to install correctly (either partial failures or complete failures).  When it would install, I wouldn't get intellisense for XAML files. In searching the web, everything seems to point to this being a byproduct of one Microsoft hotfix or another. I have gone through these lists of hotfix items that have known conflicts with VS2K8 installations, and not found any on my machine.  My approach at this point is to start (blindly) un-installing MS hot fixes, then attempt to re-install VS.  I will document all but the first one, because I uninstalled it before I wrote this down.  I will post if I actually have any luck.
