The 2.0 release is planned to take a dependency on .NET 3.0. Users of Windows Vista won't have anything extra to do, but if you're installing the Ward Photo Directory program on a clerk's computer at church, you will probably need to install the .NET 3.0 redistributable (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=10CC340B-F857-4A14-83F5-25634C3BF043&displaylang=en) on that computer (50 MB download).

Are there any concerns here?

It only d/led a 2.8 MB file form the redistributable link you gave... we'll see. I'm highly excited about testing this out though. The last clerks had inherited a massively complicated procedure using Access and so forth which they haven't gotten around to sharing with me. I was contemplating using a javascript to parse file names and the cvs output to spit out a webpage, but this sounds like its going to work alot better. Hope I can get it running.

I think that's just the download executable that's 2.8MB. Once you download it, it will download much more.
And do try the currently released version. Let me know what you think.
