Visual Studio 2003 , issue with differences between Developer and Architect editions.

1) Does Visual Studio 2003 Enterprize Architect(VSEA) have everything that Visual Studio  2003 Enterprize Developer has?

2) If so, then how come VSEA comes on only 3 CD's? At my last company the old version of VSEA came on 7 CD's ?
So what's the deal with VSEA? Have some of my Co-workers lost the other CD's or something or have they compressed this edition?

    Yes, Enterprise Architect includes all the features of all other editions. There's a good chance the other CDs were the MSDN Library CDs, which was 3 CDs as of October 2003.

    You can get the full rundown on the differences here:

    What i meant was that the OLD VSEA from about 2001 - 2002 had 7 CD's
    Does you copy of VSEA 2003 have only three CD's?
