VS2008 and a C# project. That should be all.

Which version of VS? C#3 is included with VS 2008. If you have VS 2008
and are having problems trying new .NET 3.5 features (e.g. LINQ),
check if

- you've got the required using statement for the LINQ extension
methods (e.g. using System.Linq for Linq to Objects)

- your target framework is set correctly - check Project Properties /
Application tab / Target Framework setting.

(the latter could be the problem if you upgraded to VS 2008 and
converted a solution from e.g. 2005)

Regards,
Gilles.

VS 2005.
C#3 is included with VS 2008.
Is it possible for me to use C# 3 without paying for an upgrade to VS team
edition 2008?

Yes, just get the express version via download. It is 100% cheaper.

Yes - install the express edition:

So I cannot use the tools that are part of my VS 2005 with C# 3, like the
profiler?

Hmm... you *may* be able to build it in C# Express (targeting .NET
2.0) and then profile it in VS2005 - but frankly at that point I think
it would be rather more efficient to buy VS2008. It'll mean a lot less
fiddling about
