Is Vista Ready for VS2K5?

P: n/a
I'm about to get a new computer for VS2K5 development. Is it ok to get
Vista yet or should I stick with XP?

Thanks,

I think it's ok if you installed vs2k5 with sp1 and KB932230(vs2k5 upate for
vista).

PS: vs2k8 also support .NET framework 2.0. And vs2k8 is fullly support
vista.

Visual Studio.NET 2005 will work with Vista, but needs a service pack
upgrade plus a special Vista patch.

However, I would strongly suggest you go for Visual Studio.NET 2008...

Mark,

Is there a compelling reason to upgrade to VS2K8 if virtually all your users
are still using Windows XP & Office 2K3 and SharePoint 2.0?

..NET Framework 3.5

How is that relevant...?

Sooner or later, you will find that you have a lot of reasons to use VS
2008. But, as long as you have the described SP and hotfix, and no
compelling need to employ .NET 3.0 and 3.5, VS 2005 will be "OK".

I am still on XP, personally, because I like the XP upgrade from Vista. :-)

Actually, with the patch and SP1, things are okay in Vista land. I also feel
the switch to VS 2008 is worth it (if nothing else, for the desingers), but
it is not a financial commitment for me, personally, so I am not weighing
the costs. You have to balance the cost versus benefits yourself.

To be serious for a moment, I am really still running XP on this machine. I
switched to Vista early on, but found it to be a serious problem. I do have
a home machine on Vista, so I am not Vista-phobic, but I had enough problems
that I am in a comfort zone with XP now. :-)

I am still running Vista but had a problem (took a year to find the problem)
and could run VS 2005 ok. Using VS 2008 now. I am providing link to page
in case others have same problem. It manifests itself in some of the
strange Vista behaviour. When I first installed VS 2008 I could deal with
VB but attempting to add a class in C# would not work.

http://www.brianpeek.com/blog/archiv...try-issue.aspx

I had this very same problem. I could install just about anything but the
permissions problem would cause all sorts of weird errors. Running the
utility provided by MS (wouldn't it have been as easy to do it right in the
first place) fixed the problems and I now run VS without problems.

Hope this helps
