Visual Studion Express 2008 SP1, Visual Web Developer Express 2008 and Web Application Project Template
I installed Visual Web Developer Express 2008 sp1 on my two machines, one running Vista & other running XP. On the XP machine, when I open VWD Express 2008 I get an option to use Web Application project template as a new project option but on my Vista machine I only get an option to use Web site model template option. My question is, is the sp1 incompatible with vista? Any help or explanation would be appreciated
SP1 is compatible with vista. I would try devenv.exe /installvstemplates to see if you could force vwd to see the other project types otherwise ...How to use Visual Web Developper 2008 Express Edition with Visual C# 2008 Express Edition for n-tier development
Can these products be bundled when working in a n-tier project? What are the best practise methods? Or is moving to Visual Studio 2008 Standard Editon the solution?
In most cases you will find all you need is in VWD 2008, If you install SP1 then you can compile class libraries now as well, so less need for c#2008.

I have downloaded the Visual Studio 2008 Express with SP1 All-In-One DVD image file, burned a DVD and installed Visuall Basic, with SQL Server and Visual Web Developer. However when I try to test a new site and add a New Item/SQL Sever database I get a message: "failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in starting the process for the user instance.

I'm working with Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition and SQL Server Express Edition to create a website. I read recently that the express edition does not have deployment capability. Is that correct or did I mis-read something? If it does not have this capability, is there a tutorial somewhere showing how to deploy with all the proper security elements and connection strings intact?I'm new at this, so need lots of hand-holding. Thanks!Bruce

Hi,I'm a programmer with a 4 year degree in computer science. I have been programming in some sort for 25 years. I have done VB (several years ago), Delphi (last done several years ago), and currently do some Acess programming every other month along with Perl about every month. I have never done any web page programming other than straight html (since 1996). My boss just asked me to look into learning ASP. We have a completed ASP project for a customer and our current vendor is too busy to update it. I would be the one doing minor changes and doing the next major phase.

Does anyone know if visual web developer 2008 express edition has the option to integrate with visual sourcesafe 2005 or is the option only available for the full version of Visual Studio 2008? I couldn't find the option for source control in the express edition. Thanks in advance.

It's been a while since I actively designed in dot net. Now it's time to do some serious updating to our website (from dot net 1.1 to 3.5). I haven't used any of the new design tools but want to be able to take complete advantage of all the new features of v3.5 and the features of development applications.
What are the differences between Visual Studio 2008 / Visual Web Developer Express 2008 / SharePoint Designer / Etc. and are there any others I should consider for development? I just want to settle on a development platform so I can start moving forward...Visual Web Developer 2008 Express
Is it possible to integrate a Web Deployment Project into a VWD 2008 Express solution? I installed WebDeploymentSetup.msi but my VWD 2008 Express solution won't load the Web Deployment project.
If it is not possible to do this, is there a workaround such that I can 'mimic' the functionaity of the Web Deployment Project using only VWD 2008 Express?
My basic problem right now is that my VWD 2008 Express solution is capable of building all the standard projects it contains into .dll's, but the Web Deployment project is not loaded and therefore can't ...Migrate Visual Web Developement 2008 Express application to Visual Studio 2005
Can some body guide on how to migrate existing application build on Vweb dev Express 2008 to Visual Studio 2005.
I don't think there's a general way to do this; it all depends on if you are using .NET 3.5 stuff.

I have Visual Studio .NET installed and have purchased a textbook for learning that uses examples, cases, and projects which reference use of Visual Web Developer Express 2005 (VWD). I have discovered that there are some nuances of differences between the Web UI in Visual Studio .Net 2005 and VWD. Therefore, I want to install VWD. I downloaded VWD and started to install it but stopped as I noticed the intallation as about to copy all it's files into the same directory the contained Visual Studio.

How does one delete (remove) a web site in Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition?
I looked high and low through the menu system and the toolbars. But I could find what for me would be an obvious menu item the file menu.
Feel a bit silly, but I thought I best ask. Maybe I am missing something extremely obvious. So obvious that I am blinded by it.

I would like to know what are the differences between VWD Express and Expression Web Designer ?I have played with both and they seem very similar, is there a comparison chart available or does anyone have any thoughts on this ?
There are huge differences. Expression is Designer-oriented too and has more advanced page layout and CSS tools, but does not include compilers, debugger and does not provide code intellisense. VWD and Visual Studio are developer-oriented tools, they provide advanced tools for those who are primarily writing code. Markup and script intellisense are approximatel...
