What is VS2005 RTM?

My Visual Studio 2005 is version 8.0.50727.762 (SP 50727-7600).

I copied my code to my manager's laptop. Wanted to open the porject but got the error that the project cant be opened because of different versions.

I looked at his VS2005 and he has  8.0.50727.42 (RTM  050727-4200)..

What is RTM? Why cant i open the project on his laptop??

RTM is Visual Studio as it was release.  Looks like you have installed a service pack 1 on yours.

You need to install the runtime library for Visual Studio 2005 SP1 on any computer that you want to run your programs on. Microsoft supplies a redist application that installs the required components. Download the file here:

No, your computer has SP1 installed.  You would need to upgrade him to it also.

I think he needs this:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/bb265237.aspx

the first link that says: "Visual Studio 2005 SP1 (includes SP1 updates for Standard, Professional, and Team Editions of Visual Studio 2005)"....

correct?

the green links are advertisements from Experts-Exchange.  and yes all you need to do is apply SP1 to his machine.  And thats the correct link.
