Visual Studio 2008 version?

  • Visual Studio 2008 version?
  • According to Gabe's blog there's some "internal chatter" about a Visual Studio 2008 version. What is the probability of that?

    I don't really see a chance for our company to upgrade to VS 2010 any time soon, and I would guess I'm not the only one with this issue.

    So ... will a VS 2008 version come with the RC? Or the final release? Or never?

    Thanks,
    Chris
  • Hello Chris,

    For now we are going to support VS 2010 with the SDK project. We are going to consider support for VS 2008 for one of the next releases.

  • Which edition of VS 2010 is required? Will it work with the Web Express edition (which is free)? See www.microsoft.com/.../.

    Thanks.
  • Hello Donnie Hale,

    There should not be a problem to use express edition. We will not provide support for VS 2008, because we use Silverlight 4 and it requires VS 2010.

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately, the limitations of Visual Studio Express Editions effectively prevent their use in my case.

    As you're now saying that you will not provide support for VS 2008, it seems like I won't be able to use the SDK at all. That really is a drawback.

    Cheers,
    Chris
