Could someone give be a brief summary of the additions in visual studio pro compared to the standard edition.

We have an application that we employed a developer to write for us and we now wish to continue development (mostly minor tweaks) in house.
The application uses a database but only a local access one and not MSSQL.
It also uploads data using ftp.
We wont have any need for visual sourcesafe as there will only be 1 or possibly 2 people using it.

I suspect MSSQL is something you only get in the pro version but what about ftp?

Hello grblades,

Here is the product comparison chart from MS regarding the different Visual Studio editions.
I dont know if you have already seen it, but it might come in handy.


Personally i think that FTP is included in all versions, as windows itsself is capable of handling FTP.

Kind regards,

Do you know what the SQL limitations are in the standard version?

Do you also know what the 'User experience' section means?

Pro version has SQL integrated on the application. Easy to connect, to bound (combobox, datagridview, ...), etc.

One of the big advantages of the pro version.
