Visual Basic Studio 2008 Professional


  • I am a little concerned about upgrading to Windows 7. I have heard that VB Studio 2008 Professional doesn't work well with Windows 7 and have experienced one specific problem myself while attempting to connect a VB project to an Access database. Are there any known compatibility issues with VBS 2008 PRO and Windows 7? If so are there any patches available to correct them?

  • Hello,

    As I knon, Visual Studio 2008(VB) could be installed and worked well with WIN7. After install VS2008, it is recommeneded to apply VS2008 SP1.

    In addition, if you have any issues while working with VB, you can post on the Visual Basic Forum so you can get better and quicker response as there are more experts on it.
