Confusion: VB Express/VC Express/Sql Server Express Edition

P: n/a
Hello

Can any one tell me that if I buy Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional
for dotnet, do I get following product
Visual Basic Express
Visual C# Express
Sql Server Express
Web Devlopment Express Edition

I know these tools are availabe for free download from microsoft.

What is the difference between express products and MS Visual Studio 2005
Professional version? I heard so many things on these express proructs,
eager to work on them, If I dont buy MS VS 2005 pro, is there any licensing
involved in these express edition for an ndividual?

Please respod asap, so I can take the decesion.

Regards

Try :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/pr...e/default.aspx

Basically Express is a simplified version of Professional and is available
free for one year (expect SQL Server Express that will remain free).

Hi,

The express editions are stripped down versions of vs 2005 pro. You
will have addition project types and added features in the ide.

Hi,

The expresses versions are stripped down versions of the Professional
edition, you will not be able to develop certain types of apps ( like for
pocketPCs )
also they have a licensing for a certain time, after that it depends of MS
if they are extended or not.
