VS.NET 2005 vs VS.NET 2003
I have used VS.NET 2003 extensively and exploited all features like drag and drop functions for creating components, drag and drop data access components...For example VS.NET 2003 allows creating sqldataadapter for table mapping , stored proc parameters mappings etc..We can drag pretty much any object on component designer....Not it seems like all that gone...VS.NET 2005, there is no way we can drag the typed dataset, sqldata adapter, sqlcommand on forms designer . There is no concept of component. There is no component designer any more....Biggest flaw i found is sqldatasource and...VS.NET 2005 vs VS.NET 2003 #2
why there is no datagrid anymore when i drag the tables in design view?
it's the gridview,and where is the data adapter.
How will i connect the tables now?
Here are a couple videos on the new Data model in VS2005. I think you will find it much easier to use. I have watch the first one, but the second is by Fritz Onion. I think there is an Advanced Data Binding Video in the same series done by him as well.

Somebody asked this question on 1/3/06 and it went unanswered.
But AFAIk in the beta NG Dave answered it ;)
The problem is that during the setup it won't be registered in the IDE, but one
can add it by hand, this should do the trick.

...VS.NET 2003 to VS.Net 2005
I just converetd my VS.Net 2003 project to VS.NET 2005 using the convert wizard in Visual Studio 2005 Web Application Project. It compiled with no build errors and a few warnings. When Iam trying to view the project, then it gives me 404 error. Can someone help ? Thanks
Could you confirm you are using WAP (Web Application Projects) versus the built-in WSP (Web Site model)? If you have a project file after converting, then you are using WAP.
Could you post the actual 404 error you got?
Also, did you set your start page in the converted project?

So How do I obtain VS 2005 Beta version?
You can for example buy a MSDN Subscription.
You can download the express product form the folllowing site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/Fredrik Normén - fredrikn @ twitterMicrosoft MVP, MCSD, MCAD, MCTASPInsidersMy Blog
Can someone guide me to the latest builds of VS 2005 Web Developer Express Edition, SQL 2005 , XM and ASP.NET 2 frame work. I am finding it hard to make all of them to work. Its really frustrating !!!
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/Fredrik Normén - fredrikn @ twitterMicrosoft MVP, MCSD, MCAD, MCTASPInsidersMy Blog
As Fredrik said through a MSDN Subscription you can access to VS 2005 Beta versions. But if you can't afford this, there is another solution. Ordering Beta editions at no cost, just paying for Postage & Packing it is also available through this link
I'm not hundred percent sure if we have access to all the versions, but you get one of them almost for free.
If I'm not wrong Beta 1 shipped to Spain was around 10 US Dollars... nothing compared with all the hours I've been playing around with the tools.

VS.NEt 2003 detects 2002 project format automatically when you try to open 2002 project with it. It also asks you if the project needs to be converted into 2003 format (if I remember right conversion must be done to use the project in 2003). If you say yes, it does the conversion and you don't have to do anything. Note that VS.NEt 2002 can't open 2003 projects.Thanks,Teemu KeiskiFinland, EU

Yes you can install both. You will need the 2.o/3.0 version of the framework for 2005, and if you run 1.1 and 2.0+ apps on IIS you'll need to set up sepaarte application pools (IIS6).
