Uninstalling Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP

Or, thanks to Nick Berardi, you can just navigate to the install folder (C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone  CTP – ENU is the default), right click on vs_setup.msi and select Uninstall from the menu.

It works great, and is much better than redownloading the CTP and reinstalling first.

Now, back to installing the XNA Game Studio 4.0 Beta!
