Hi,

Which version (standard of professional) do I need (ms website is not clear
to me) for:
- developing windows based programs
- developing ASPX for internet
- developing windows mobile applications for PDA's

Please let me know, so I can tell my boss what to buy?

thanks,
Eric

I recomment not to buy a Standard edition. Instead, buy at least the
Professional edition. The Professional edition is more expensive than
the Standard edition, but upgrading will be easier and the Professional
edition is much more powerful because it doesn't only include a single
..NET programming language.

Hallo Eric,

The benefits are to much comparing VB2002 with VB2003 to mention here, it
would leave open some which there are.

However better is in my opinion to take a MSDN subscription.

In Holland by

I hope this helps?

You must buy Visual Studio Pro 2003. None of the single languages allow
mobile device development.

Jesus, just stamp MS on your forehead!!

Buy the standard edition unless you really have enough money to buy the
professional edition. All of your desired tasks can be achieved using
VB.NET standard, so why go for more? I think the expression is "living
beyond means" or "sleeping with MS" one of those 2, I can't quite remember!

No, I beleive that it is tools, like debugging on a Mobile device is not
supported by the standard edition.

While I do not disagree with your comments, based on Herfried vague
statements, the requirement to develop for Mobile Devices as Eric requested
is not supported by the standard version. Must use VS 2003 Pro.

Sure, all tasks can be archieved without VS.NET at all too, using the

Missing templates. Missing Help documentation. Missing all of the CF
assemblies. So no, not just templates. You might be able to patch
something together with the CF stuff from Platform Builder, but you'd still
not get method and namespace filtering in the IDE and you'd have to
command-line build. IMHO it'd be a bigger pain in the ass than it's worth
to try to get anything done, especially since you might actually want to use
the controls not available on the desktop, so you couldn't even use the
Forms editor to do your layout.

It doesn't necessarily, but your productivity may be reduced because
lack of some features.

Hi Herfried,

lack of some features.


I do understand what you are trying to say, but productivity isnt always
down to the software your using, it's down to you, how good you are at
developing ideas with what you have. What's the old saying, "a good workman
never blames his tools". I still don't feel the need for anything other
VB.NET standard at the moment, but that is me *personally* of course, if I
want to write lets say a "plug-in" in C# I will use SharpDevelop, but I very
rarely need to do this, if I find code written in another language I will
attempt to port it to VB.NET.

Some people rely too much on the IDE nower days to do half of the coding for
them, that doesn't make you any better at coding that is for sure.

Surely in this day and age of hi-tech modular programming they could have
included the necessary device development features in each standardized
component. I *personally* don't have the need for it at the moment anyway
but if I did I would be seriously upset if I needed to purchase an extremely
expensive piece of software to add this facility, like why not make a
"VB.NET Mobile Edition" and make it only develop software for mobile devices
then charge like 50 for it?

Nov 20 '05 #17

I believe that is somewhat the plan in the next version. The reality is
that the CF stuff was a real late addition to Studio 03, and there wasn't
enough time to get it fully tested for inclusion into standard editions.
Same thing with the stand-alone SDK (which would allow integration with
things like SharpDevelop). Believe me, there's a lot of call for this from
the embedded world where the C++ IDE and compilers have been free for some
time. Trying to convince someone they now have to buy a $2000 package is a
tough sell.

I agree. But a good developer + a productive tool will be more
productive than a good developer without the tool.
What's the old saying, "a good workman never blames his tools".
I still don't feel the need for anything other VB.NET standard
at the moment, but that is me *personally* of course
I understand your point, there are cases in which you don't need the
whole VS. There are many former VB6 developers who don't need more than
the Standard version of VB.NET to get their work done. But there are
developers who want to do more, who want to mix programming languages to
save time by reusing other components and source code.
if I want to write lets say a "plug-in" in C# I will use
SharpDevelop, but I very rarely need to do this, if I find
code written in another language I will attempt to port it
to VB.NET.
Personally, I would try to keep my code VB.NET-only too, but in VS.NET,
the different programming languages + debugger are integrated. So, it's
a very good programming experience without using additional tools.
Some people rely too much on the IDE nower days to do half of the coding for
them, that doesn't make you any better at coding that is for sure.


Full ACK!

all my personal files on a separate drive, but don't you just hate how every
program that now calls itself XP compatible creates a new folder in your my

you would have thought that MS would have done one for Outlook Express, "My

Aah, I suppose that makes sence, having not posessed the Professional

Yeah, thats all too right, I like the thought of *development* being free,
using your own skills and knowledge to build makeshift solutions for
yourself and your friends with absolutly no cost other than your time,
things are so different now but I suppose people in the know, know the way.

Like one thing I would like to do lately is get hold of the source code for
my Nokia 6230 and modify it, but it's just a load of red tape everywhere, no
documentation on anything. Oh well, digression? Possibly so.

Hi Nick,

First I thought it completly out of context however it is not, a lot of
programmers I see here do not use the framework, however they are completly
crazy to use Api's as sson as they see one.

(Api's were our first discussion, one of the last it was as well I remember
me).

When people are doing that, than they do not need VB profesional, any IDE
will do.

As you know I do not like that.

that they can be used in any application, would this actually work though?
Hmmm probably not.

This is how I would find old threads I was involved with:

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...languages.vb.*
OR simply from groups.google.com:
