** "Visual Studio 2005 extensions for.NET Framework 3.0 (WCF & WPF), November 2006" could not be found on the Microsoft download site, but could still be found on other sites like www.download.com. So, you can do a search on www.google.com if you cannot find these extensions on Microsoft's website.

*** At the time of writing this document, there were problems installing the "Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF WPF)" if you had Visual Studio 2005 with SP1 installed. In such cases, perform the following steps in order to get the Visual Studio 2005 extensions working:

1)         Install the .NET Framework 3.0 (not 3.5!)

2)         Install the Visual Studio 2005 extensions for .NET Framework 3.0 (WCF & WPF)

3)         Re-install Visual Studio 2005 SP1 (telling the SP1 setup to re-install SP1)

4)         You can now install .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1) (optional)

It is possible that future revisions of the .NET framework or the Visual Studio service packs will change this order. Alternatively, you can follow the procedures outlined in the MSDN Forum article, "Visual Studio 2005 WPF Extensions Problem", at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vssetup/thread/baefd1bf-4137-4a0d-bf1e-39af93ffd543/.
