Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 3.5 RRS feed

Answers

  • 1. VS 2005 was built to target on .NET 2.0, and since .NET 3.5 still uses the same core as v2.0, you can perfectly use the VS 2005 on the machine installed with .NET 3.5.

     

    2. Visual Studio 2005 does not have access to various new project and item templates and tools that support .NET Framework 3.5, so if we developers want the full new features with .NET 3.5 which would be necessary in Visual Studio 2008, VS 2008 is a better choice (you may have known that VS 2008 support multi-target: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/06/20/vs-2008-multi-targeting-support.aspx)

     

    Thanks

    .NET 3.5 still use CLR 2.0, so I'm not sure what you mean, but if you want to use some new features come along with .NET 3.5 such as LINQ, AJAX etc, you need VS 2008.

  • CLR version of .NET 3.0 and .NET 3.5 are both 2.0.

     

    Here is a good blog explain it: http://www.danielmoth.com/Blog/2007/06/net-framework-35.html
