Sorry, I don't have Visual studio 2008. I do see that code coverage is discussed on MSDN for this product.

Have you looked at Bulls Eye coverage? Its also mentioned in  my last post.
Its not free but you might want to evaluate it first.

And then ofcourse there's what Visual Studio provides. Its free but I was more comfortable with Bulls Eye
