"Add Inherited Form" Missing from Visual C# Express Beta 2?

Apologies if this is a known issue, but I couldn't seem to turn it up
with google or on Technet.

I am using Visual C# 2005 Express, Beta 2. I am learning C# and have
come to the point in the book I am reading, which covers form
inheritance. Granted, the book is for Visual Studio 2003, but it
directs me to use a menu item called "Add Inherited Form," available on
the Project menu. This menu item, however, does not appear for me. I
also have a purchased copy of VB.NET 2003, and i do see the item there
in Visual Studio, under Project - so just to let you know, I understand
where I believe I *should* be seeing it in the beta.

Also, the online documentation for C# 2005 Express directs me to use
the same menu item, on the same menu.

Is this a bug? Do I have some sort of configuration problem? Has
anyone else experienced this?

Not sure about the Express SKU, but under Project you should select Add
Windows Form... and pick "Inherited Form" from the installed templates list.

PS. I suggest you to post beta2 questions to the whidbey forum at
forums.microsoft.com.

Thanks for the response. Unfortuantely, "Inherited Form" does not
appear as an installed template there.

Additionally, the online help documentation also mentions an "Add
Inherited Form" menu item which should appear directly under the
Project menu.

Thanks for the heads-up on the beta2 forum. I will try there.

That means this feature is missing from the Express SKU, it's included with
the Team System version though.
