Do I need Pro or Dev Edition of .NET ?

I'm completely new to .Net, so go easy on me for this.

Will the VS.NET Pro edition allow me to edit .DLL's ? Will it allow me to
create .DLL's ? Or, will I need to buy the Dev Edition ?

I'm unsure the company i work for will pay the extra 2 grand for Dev
edition, unless I can make a huge case for it. The company who developed our
Web App went the long way around and did things in such a way as to make sure
we were tied to them for enhancements ect, but i'm thinking I can do the easy
stuff myself right. I'm a VB / SQL developer with a bit of ASP, so I'm not
completley useless!
I need to put my software request in soon, so i am anxious to find out the
answer :)

The short answer is that you can develop DLL's in Professional, but that's
hardly adequate as there are numerous project templates in VS.NET that
produce DLL's. So the question is: what kind of DLL's are you talking about,
and what language(s)/project types are you talking about?
Here is an edition feature comparison chart that may be helpful:

You make some good points. I have contacted the Dev company to ask, as at
this time, I do not have access to the source code (and no ide to view it in
anyways). Its a Web App (c#,asp.net) connecting to a SQL 2000 backend. They
have made a .DLL to handle Database connections and data manipulation. The
thing is, they being real cagey with me, as they do not want anyone but
themselves to work on the App. They seem to think they going to get a big
juicy maintenance contract, and they forgte that my employer specified that
"we" own the code in the contracts.
