  • Hi Jignesh Desai,
    no no .
    installing a new framework to visual studio not changing any thing in templates or tools
    and you must know that is frame 3.5 setup size = 69 MB  if you had installed it  from Microsoft website:

    -4e35-b531-508d977d32a6&DisplayLang=en

    and if you using VS 2005 you can't update it and if you using VS 2008 then it's currently using framework 3.0

  • Hello Jignesh,

    Could you let me know what version of Visual Studio you are using?

    If it is Visual Studio 2005, then installing .NET Framework 3.5 won't add new features/project & item templates to it. Visual Studio 2005 was designed for .NET Framework 2.0.

    If you want to develop applications using the new features available in .NET Framework 3.5, you'll have to use Visual Studio 2008.

    If the above is not the case, please tell me more about what you want and I'll see how can I help.

    Thanks,
    Jie

  • Hi Jie,

    I am using VS2008.

    After Installing dotnetfx35setup.exe I was expecting that i will have new items in project templates.

    Now I think I will also need to install VS2008 SP1.  Right ?



    I wanted to see templates like
    Entity Framework
    Dynamic Data
    ADO.NET Data Services
    MVC
    { Don;t know if anything else should be there }



    Regards

  • Okay, I see.

    For ADO.NET Data Services, you will need Visual Studio 2008 SP1. This article Using Microsoft ADO.NET Data Services describes the Pre-requisites and provided instructions / samples on this topic.

    For MVC, I guess you are talking about the ASP.NET MVC. That is a separate download, you can get it here from the offical ASP.NET MVC website.

    And What's New in Visual Studio 2008 SP1 for your reference.

    If I missed anything, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Jie

  • The .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 has the runtime support for all of these. And Visual Studio 2008 SP1 has the tool support.

    So after installing Visual Studio 2008 SP1, you may want to check these links to get started:
