VB 2005 upgrade to VB 2008.
Posted on 2009-07-13
Hi, I currently use VB 2005 WinForms, because I have the entire Virtual Studio 2005 Standard Edition v8.0.5 suite. Since I primarily use VB.NET, I was thinking of upgrading to VB 2008 Express Edition, which is free. However, before I do that I have a couple of questions:
*** Note: Please keep in mind I only use VB.NET in WinForms mode.
1). Will I have to do anything to my current "in development" applications to be able to continue to work on them in VB 2008?
2). Is there any functionality (in VB.NET only) that I'm going to have to give up if I do upgrade from VB 2005 (Virtual Studio Standard Edition v8.0.5) to VB 2008 Express Edition?
3). Has anyone experienced any negative issues they believe to be caused by VB 2008?
4). Is there anything I need to take into account in considering this upgrade?
5). Will I notice any significant or obvious change once I upgrade and if so, what should I expect... both positive and negative?
Thanks for the advice,
