ASP.NET, Visual Studio and Vista

I know that Vista has been out for a while, but just in case people are looking for information on how to use ASP.NET 1.1, Visual Studio 2005, or Visual Studio 2003 on Vista, here are some very helpful links.

Of course the best option is to upgrade to Visual Studio 2008, but I understand that it isn’t always an option for everyone.

Hope that these links help.

    Anyone else have constant crashed in VS 2008 when developing ASP.NET apps with Vista OS ?

    Thanks for the links. Vista was giving me so many fits trying to run a VS 2003 application that I dug an old laptop out of storage so I would work with VS 2003 on windows XP. I have Vista on 2 different laptops and I despise it. If I could find all of the drivers I need for XP I’d fdisk each HD and go back to XP in a heartbeat.

  6. Will,

    Have you tried installing the updates?  This should take care of any issues we currently know of.

    Vista and VS2008 … I’ve reached the point where the combination is simply not usable. Even access to the remote FTP server seems to lock VS2008 up. It happens under Web Developer as well so I think it is a Vista issue.

    Hate them both but it’s a MS world so Vista has to go.

    I’m now upgrading to a more stable and comfortable OS.

  10. Paul,

    Sorry they are unusable, you can try to look into it if you like.  Just open a support case with Microsoft.  And they should be able to help get it working again.
