Edited: Read the final update on this issue:
After searching around and trying some of the suggested solutions which were all from the beta version of VS. I still had the error. I filled an issue on Microsoft Connect, and after some time, was contact by a Microsoft Developer. By the way this developer gave me some of the best support I've ever had from a third party so hats of to you :-).
There is no patch available yet; however, I will update this post once one is available. Hopefuly this post will help save you the months of annoyance and frustration. If it did leave a comment, I'm interested to know how many people might be impacted by this.

Microsoft recently announced the RTM of Expression Studio 2, and a new way to buy Expression via a Professional Subscription which appears simillar to MSDN. What I find interesting is what they include with this license:
- Expression® Studio
- Visual Studio® Standard
- Office Standard
- Office Visio® Professional
- Windows® XP
- Windows Vista® Business Edition
- Virtual PC
- Parallels Desktop for Mac
- Pre-configured virtualized server environments
I think it is good that they are embracing the Macintosh platform by including Parallels, at the very least this is a good business decision on their part. The thing I find the most interesting is that they are including a license for Windows XP.
