Framework Installation Question

Good morning experts:

I'm currently using Visual C++.Net  [2003] as my development environment and have run into a known snafu -- the folderbrowsedialog control displays a window, but doesn't display the contents of the selected directory.  I've searched for a solution and found that I could upgrade to 2005, which I'd prefer not to do, but it was also suggested to upgrade my framework to 2.x.

I downloaded went to Microsoft Update and installed the framework 2.x update, but when I open my Visual c++.net environment, select the Help menu/About Microsoft Visual C++.net, it displays the following information:

Microsoft Development Environment 2003  Version 7.1.3088
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Version 1.1.4322 SP1

My question is, shouldn't this reflect the 2.x update I applied?

I'm rather new to the Visual C++.NET environment, so please take it easy on me with your solutions :-)

No, what it reports is correct. In order to compile and build apps with 2.0 you would need to upgrade to VS2005.

Currently I have two environments installed -- Visual Basic.NET [Standard] and Visual C++.NET[standard] ... would this mean I'd need to upgrade both to 2005 to apply the framework 2.x update?

If you wanted to use 2.0 from both languages then yes. Otherwise you can upgrade one and use 2.0 whilst continuing to use 1.1 in the other.

Okay .. maybe you could help me with an online location to purchase the software.  I'm on Microsoft's site and noticed C++.NET 2005 Express Edition.  Is that what I'm looking for?

Depends what you need it for. Express editions are the free versions of the Visual Studio 2005 family, but, obviously, lack some of the features of the full-blown versions.
