Hello,

When I started visual studio 2008 for the first time, I chose business intelligence development for the first time.  Now I am unable to create winforms.  How do I get that capability back

Some project templates do not reference the System.Windows.Forms namespace when you create a new project, because windows are not always used in those types of projects.

You need to add the reference yourself by going into the project's Properties (last entry of the Project menu by default), References tab, Add... button, .NET tab. Select System.Windows.Forms, OK, et voilà.

Just to clarify,  I had just installed visual studion 2008.  when I started visual studio, I was presented with a prompt to select the environment.  I selected business inteiligenc instead of staying with the defaults.

Thanks for the help.  I'm trying to teach myself ssrs.  Unfortunately,  I  have visual studion 2010 and the book I am using uses visual studio 2008.  There appear to be some sort of llimitation issues using sql 2008 report server w/visual studio 2010, so I decided to download visual studio 2008
