Converting Visual Studio 2003 (1.1 framework) to Visual Studio 2008 (3.5 framework)
I am having problems converting my application. Here are the steps I have taken (or tried so far)
(structure of the folders are root folder has solution and sub folder has .csproj and all other files)
1 - manually copied the 2003 files to a new folder
2 - Added a virtual directory for that new folder
3 - Manually changed the .sln in the new folder to point to the new virtual directory
4 - Started 2008 and received error stating the web site doesnot exist at location "http://localhost/projectfolder/projectname.csproj"

HelloI just have these two quick questions.Thanks.1) Can you code in Visual Studio 2005 using Framework 3.0 instead of 2.0?2) Is the Visual Studio 2008 the final, final release available to download on the MSDN site? The reason I'm asking is that I don't want to be put into a position when it hits the DVDs in Feb. 2008 and have to uninstall. The horror stories of the past BETA uninstalls got me all scared:(

In the company we're currently developing some applications in ASP.NET 2.0 with Visual Studio 2005 and we're seriously thinking about an upgrade to Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5.What are your experiences with the new framework and the new Visual Studio? Are they already reliable for the productive use or are they still buggy like Vista or the first AJAX release?It's very important for us to do this upgrade only if the is stability is warranted.
Thank you for your feedbacks!

I am trying to create reports in VB using Visual Studio 2008/.NET Framework 3.5 with a SQL Server 2000 backend (moving to SQL Server 2005 in a couple of months).
I am fairly new to this environment and I'm not sure what the best approach is. I see that there is a Visual Studio Template for Reports, but my attempts to get it working have failed. I've tried finding tutorials on this, but nothing is quite what I need. It seems most articles are for VS 2005 or SQL Reporting Services.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm tired of going in circles.

I just recently installed VS2008 SP1 and .Net 3.5 SP1. After successful installation of both, I am experiencing a problem in the IDE in which hyperlinks that have an image URL assigned will not render appropriately. If I remove the imageURL, the control renders correctly.
This is occurring on both Vista and XP.
All appears to be good at runtime, but design time looks AWFUL!
Is there something I should have done differently (e.g., installed the SPs in a different order, installed a hot fix, etc.) that woudl have prevented this from occurring?
Is there a fix for this?

....NET 3.0 or 3.5 in visual studio 2005
Hi,I'm developing a site using two seperate machines depending on my location. One has VS 2008. The other has VS 2005. Is there a way to get .NET 3.0 or 3.5 to work on on Visual Studio 2005. I was told .NET 3.5 won't work because it contains the Vista Modules, but I don't know about 3.0.
Visual Studio 2005 cannot use .Net Framework 3.5 as target framework.
In your case, we can install .Net Framework 3.0 redistributable package (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=10CC340B-F857-4A14-83F5-25634C3BF043&displaylang=en) wh...Has anyone upgraded to Bet.net framework version 3.5 service pack 1 to resolve issues using Visual Studio 2008?
I am considering upgrading to SP1 but this release is relatively new - Aug 2008 I would like to know if anyone has upgraded to Bet.net framework version 3.5 service pack 1 as a result of issues with using visual studio 2008.If yes please can you provide details
I installed Visual Studio 2008 SP1 (it installs the .NET 3.5 SP1 as well) and it works great. You will only have problems if you have installed the SP1 beta. If that is the case you will find this tool very useful when removing the beta installation. I use it in production and have never had any problems.http://pavkata.b...Integrating Visual Studio 2008 / .NET 3.5 with PayPal

VS 2008 is the option if you want an IDE to develop .NET 3.5 apps. But, you can use a text editor and .NET 3.5 SDK too.

You cannot use 3.5 with VS 2005. You can use 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5 with VS 2008.VS 2005 is specifically designed to use 2.0. There is no way around this. Christopher Reed"The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient."
