    I have Visual C++ 2008 Express installed. When I run the Windows SDK Configuration Tool and click "Make Current", it gives me an error message stating that i do not have Visual Studio 2005, 2008, or later installed. How can I fix this?

  11. 現在工具越包越大,連想用命令列模式+Notepad寫程式(好吧,我承認我用的Notepad++)都很難. 雖然灌好Visual Studio 2005/2008之後,開始功能表裡面也有命令列的選項(也幫我們設好環境變數),可是這些開發工具怪獸實在大的可怕.

    I installed the New 3.5 SDK yesterday, and now Intellasense for my XAML files in XAML view no longer works.

    It’s like typing in notepad.  Intellasense is working in VB.NET code files, just not in the XAML files.

    Please help

    Thank you

    2. What is your machine architecture? (X86, X64 or IA64)

    3. Do you have any earlier Windows SDK installed (Vista, Vista Update)

    4. Do you have Visual Studio installed?  Which version (2005 or 2008, Retail or Express)

    5. Which application did you install first? (Windows SDK or VS)

    6. Did you do a default or custom install of the Windows SDK? (if custom install, what components did you deselect?)
