VB.NET Class Library Template Not Displayed

Posted on 2006-05-21

I am learning VB.NET using Visual Basic Standard Version 2003. The instructions I’m following say:
>>Create the Visual Basic .NET BenefitsListVB class library

1. Create a new Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Class Library project, name it BenefitsListVB, and then add it to the 2310LabApplication solution:

 a. On the File menu, click New, and then click Project.

 b. In the Project Types list, click Visual Basic Projects. In the Templates list click Class Library. Set the Name to BenefitsListVB, click Add to Solution, and then click OK.

Verify that you have capitalized the BenefitsListVB project as shown.”<<

When I get to line (b.), there is no “Class Library” in the Templates list.

Does the Standard edition not have a Class Library Template?

What is meant by "Capitalized?"

    Hi gocalla,

    What types are available in the Templates list? A Class Library is a dll project an icon with 3 different colored books on the lower left of the icon

    Capitalized in this context means that you correctly placed the B L and VB in your project name BenefitsListVB so you can reference it in the next steps

    Are you sure "Visual Basic Projects" is highlighted in the Project Types list? That's the first of the four project types that one would normally see (in the box on the left). The Class Library is normally the second of the template types (in the box on the right) in the Visual Basic Projects category; I'm not sure how many template types there are in Standard edition.

    just reading the exam cram for .net and it states the Class Library Template is not part of the Standard Edition it's only in the Professional version and higher

    i looked it up in the Enterprise Edition when commenting

    to confirm your suspicion >>Does the Standard edition not have a Class Library Template?

    No it has not

    I will uninstal Standard, then install my Visual Basic .NET 2003 Professional 60 day Evaluation copy then. Thanks for your answers.
