Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition Retail Edition

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade. Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition (Full Retail Edition NOT OEM). Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition (Retail Edition NOT OEM). Microsoft Visual Studio is an integrated development environment.

It is used to develop computer programs. Visual Studio uses Microsoft software development platforms such as Windows API. It can produce both native code.

Visual Studio includes a code editor. Component as well as code refactoring.

Works both as a source-level debugger and a machine-level debugger. Other built-in tools include a code profiler. It accepts plug-ins that enhance the functionality at almost every level-including adding support for source control. And adding new toolsets like editors and visual designers for domain-specific languages. Or toolsets for other aspects of the software development lifecycle. Visual Studio supports 36 different programming languages. And allows the code editor and debugger to support (to varying degrees) nearly any programming language, provided a language-specific service exists. Support for other languages such as Python. Among others is available via plug-ins. Were supported in the past. The most basic edition of Visual Studio, the Community edition, is available free of charge. The slogan for Visual Studio Community edition is "Free, fully-featured IDE for students, open-source and individual developers". Visual Studio does not support any programming language, solution or tool intrinsically; instead, it allows the plugging of functionality coded as a VSPackage. When installed, the functionality is available as a Service. Provides three services: SVsSolution, which provides the ability to enumerate projects and solutions; SVsUIShell, which provides windowing and UI functionality (including tabs, toolbars, and tool windows); and SVsShell, which deals with registration of VSPackages. In addition, the IDE is also responsible for coordinating and enabling communication between services. All editors, designers, project types and other tools are implemented as VSPackages.

Also includes the Managed Package Framework (MPF), which is a set of managed. Wrappers around the COM-interfaces that allow the Packages to be written in any CLI compliant language. However, MPF does not provide all the functionality exposed by the Visual Studio COM interfaces. The services can then be consumed for creation of other packages, which add functionality to the Visual Studio IDE. Support for programming languages is added by using a specific VSPackage called a Language Service.

A language service defines various interfaces which the VSPackage implementation can implement to add support for various functionalities. Functionalities that can be added this way include syntax coloring, statement completion, brace matching, parameter information tooltips, member lists, and error markers for background compilation. If the interface is implemented, the functionality will be available for the language. Language services are implemented on a per-language basis. The implementations can reuse code from the parser or the compiler for the language. Language services can be implemented either in native code. For native code, either the native COM interfaces or the Babel Framework (part of Visual Studio SDK) can be used. For managed code, the MPF includes wrappers for writing managed language services.

Visual Studio does not include any source control. Support built in but it defines two alternative ways for source control systems to integrate with the IDE. A Source Control VSPackage can provide its own customised user interface. In contrast, a source control plugin using the MSSCCI (Microsoft Source Code Control Interface) provides a set of functions that are used to implement various source control functionality, with a standard Visual Studio user interface.

MSSCCI was first used to integrate Visual SourceSafe. With Visual Studio 6.0 but was later opened up via the Visual Studio SDK. NET 2002 used MSSCCI 1.1, and Visual Studio.

NET 2003 used MSSCCI 1.2. Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010 use MSSCCI Version 1.3, which adds support for rename and delete propagation, as well as asynchronous opening.

Visual Studio supports running multiple instances of the environment (each with its own set of VSPackages). The instances use different registry hives. Of the term "registry hive " in the sense used here to store their configuration state and are differentiated by their AppId (Application ID). The instances are launched by an AppId-specific. Exe that selects the AppId, sets the root hive, and launches the IDE.

VSPackages registered for one AppId are integrated with other VSPackages for that AppId. The various product editions of Visual Studio are created using the different AppIds. Edition products are installed with their own AppIds, but the Standard, Professional, and Team Suite. Products share the same AppId. Consequently, one can install the Express editions side-by-side with other editions, unlike the other editions which update the same installation. The professional edition includes a superset of the VSPackages in the standard edition, and the team suite includes a superset of the VSPackages in both other editions. The AppId system is leveraged by the Visual Studio Shell.

It includes a code editor. IntelliSense is supported for the included languages, as well as for XML. When developing web sites and web applications. Autocomplete suggestions appear in a modeless. Over the code editor window, in proximity of the editing cursor.

In Visual Studio 2008 onwards, it can be made temporarily semi-transparent to see the code obstructed by it. The code editor is used for all supported languages. The Visual Studio code editor also supports setting bookmarks in code for quick navigation. Other navigational aids include collapsing code blocks. In addition to normal text search and regex. The code editor also includes a multi-item clipboard. The code editor supports code snippets, which are saved templates for repetitive code and can be inserted into code and customized for the project being worked on.

A management tool for code snippets is built in as well. These tools are surfaced as floating windows which can be set to automatically hide when unused or docked to the side of the screen.

The Visual Studio code editor also supports code refactoring. Including parameter reordering, variable and method renaming, interface. Extraction, and encapsulation of class members inside properties, among others. Visual Studio features background compilation (also called incremental compilation).

As code is being written, Visual Studio compiles it in the background in order to provide feedback about syntax and compilation errors, which are flagged with a red wavy underline. Warnings are marked with a green underline. Background compilation does not generate executable code, since it requires a different compiler than the one used to generate executable code. Background compilation was initially introduced with Microsoft Visual Basic.

But has now been expanded for all included languages. Main article: Microsoft Visual Studio Debugger. Visual Studio includes a debugger. That works both as a source-level debugger and as a machine-level debugger. It works with both managed code. As well as native code. And can be used for debugging applications written in any language supported by Visual Studio. In addition, it can also attach to running processes, monitor, and debug those processes. If source code for the running process is available, it displays the code as it is being run. If source code is not available, it can show the disassembly.

The Visual Studio debugger can also create memory dumps. As well as load them later for debugging.

Multi-threaded programs are also supported. The debugger can be configured to be launched when an application running outside the Visual Studio environment crashes. The debugger allows setting breakpoints. (which allow execution to be stopped temporarily at a certain position) and watches (which monitor the values of variables as the execution progresses).

Breakpoints can be conditional, meaning they get triggered when the condition is met. Code can be stepped over. Run one line (of source code) at a time. It can either step into functions to debug inside it, or step over it, i. The execution of the function body isn't available for manual inspection. The debugger supports Edit and Continue, i. It allows code to be edited as it is being debugged. When debugging, if the mouse pointer hovers over any variable, its current value is displayed in a tooltip ("data tooltips"), where it can also be modified if desired. During coding, the Visual Studio debugger lets certain functions be invoked manually from the.

The parameters to the method are supplied at the Immediate window. Visual Studio includes a host of visual designers to aid in the development of applications. The Windows Forms designer is used to build GUI.

Layout can be controlled by housing the controls inside other containers or locking them to the side of the form. Controls that display data (like textbox, list box and grid view) can be bound.

To data sources like databases. Data-bound controls can be created by dragging items from the Data Sources window onto a design surface. The UI is linked with code using an event-driven programming. The designer generates either C#.

The WPF designer, codenamed Cider. Was introduced with Visual Studio 2008. Like the Windows Forms designer it supports the drag and drop metaphor. It is used to author user interfaces. It supports all WPF functionality including data binding. File is compatible with Microsoft Expression Design. The XAML code is linked with code using a code-behind. Visual Studio also includes a web-site editor and designer that allows web pages to be authored by dragging and dropping widgets. From Visual Studio 2008 onwards, the layout engine used by the web designer is shared with Microsoft Expression Web.

Technology as a separate download. The Class Designer is used to author and edit the classes (including its members and their access) using UML. The Class Designer can generate C#. Code outlines for the classes and methods.

It can also generate class diagrams from hand-written classes. The data designer can be used to graphically edit database schemas. Including typed tables, primary and foreign keys and constraints. It can also be used to design queries from the graphical view.

From Visual Studio 2008 onwards, the mapping designer is used by LINQ to SQL. Replaces and improves the old technology. The Properties Editor tool is used to edit properties in a GUI pane inside Visual Studio.

It lists all available properties (both read-only and those which can be set) for all objects including classes. Forms, web pages and other items. It can be used to browse the namespaces (which are arranged hierarchically) in managed. The hierarchy may or may not reflect the organization in the file system.

In Visual Studio parlance, a solution is a set of code files and other resources that are used to build an application. The files in a solution are arranged hierarchically, which might or might not reflect the organization in the file system.

The Solution Explorer is used to manage and browse the files in a solution. Team Explorer is used to integrate the capabilities of Azure DevOps either Azure DevOps Services. In addition to version control integration it provides the ability to view and manage individual work items (including user stories, bugs, tasks and other documents).

It is included as part of a Visual Studio installation and is also available as a standalone download. Data Explorer is used to manage databases on Microsoft SQL Server. It allows creation and alteration of database tables either by issuing T-SQL. Commands or by using the Data designer.

It can also be used to create queries. With the latter in either T-SQL.

Support is available as well. The Server Explorer tool is used to manage database connections on an accessible computer. It is also used to browse running Windows Services. Performance counters, Windows Event Log. And use them as a datasource.

Visual Studio includes a free'light' version of Dotfuscator. By PreEmptive Solutions which obfuscates and hardens applications to help secure trade secrets (IP), reduce piracy/counterfeiting, protect against tampering and unauthorized debugging. Dotfuscator works with all flavors of. Net, Xamarin, Unity and UWP. Visual Studio includes a full text generation framework called T4.

Which enables Visual Studio to generate text files from templates either in the IDE or via code. Visual Studio Tools for Office.

Is a SDK and an add-in for Visual Studio that includes tools for developing for the Microsoft Office. NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 it was a separate SKU that supported only Visual C#. Languages or was included in the Team Suite. With Visual Studio 2008, it is no longer a separate SKU but is included with Professional and higher editions. A separate runtime is required when deploying VSTO solutions.

See also: List of Microsoft Visual Studio add-ins. Visual Studio allows developers to write extensions for Visual Studio to extend its capabilities. These extensions "plug into" Visual Studio and extend its functionality.

Extensions come in the form of macros, add-ins. Macros represent repeatable tasks and actions that developers can record programmatically for saving, replaying, and distributing.

Macros, however, cannot implement new commands or create tool windows. They are written using Visual Basic.

Add-Ins provide access to the Visual Studio object model and can interact with the IDE tools. Add-Ins can be used to implement new functionality and can add new tool windows. Add-Ins are plugged into the IDE via COM. And can be created in any COM-compliant languages.

Packages are created using the Visual Studio SDK. And provide the highest level of extensibility. They can create designers and other tools, as well as integrate other programming languages. The Visual Studio SDK provides unmanaged APIs.

As well as a managed API to accomplish these tasks. However, the managed API isn't as comprehensive as the unmanaged one.

Extensions are supported in the Standard (and higher) versions of Visual Studio 2005. Do not support hosting extensions. Visual Studio 2008 introduced the Visual Studio Shell that allows for development of a customized version of the IDE. The Visual Studio Shell defines a set of VSPackages that provide the functionality required in any IDE.

On top of that, other packages can be added to customize the installation. The Isolated mode of the shell creates a new AppId where the packages are installed.

These are to be started with a different executable. It is aimed for development of custom development environments, either for a specific language or a specific scenario. The Integrated mode installs the packages into the AppId of the Professional/Standard/Team System editions, so that the tools integrate into these editions. The Visual Studio Shell is available as a free download.

After the release of Visual Studio 2008, Microsoft created the Visual Studio Gallery. It serves as the central location for posting information about extensions to Visual Studio. Community developers as well as commercial developers can upload information about their extensions to Visual Studio. NET 2002 through Visual Studio 2010.

Users of the site can rate and review the extensions to help assess the quality of extensions being posted. An extension is stored in a VSIX file.

Internally a VSIX file is a ZIP file that contains some XML files, and possibly one or more DLL's. One of the main advantages of these extensions is that they do not require Administrator rights to be installed. RSS feeds to notify users on updates to the site and tagging features are also planned. Microsoft Visual C++ is Microsoft's partial implementation of the C.

And associated languages-services and specific tools for integration with the Visual Studio IDE. It can compile either in C mode or C++ mode.

For C++, as of version 15.7 it conforms to C++17. The C implementation of Visual Studio 2015 still doesn't support the full standard; in particular, the complex number header complex. Introduced in C99 is unsupported.

Visual C++ supports the C++/CLI. Specification to write managed code. As well as mixed-mode code a mix of native. Microsoft positions Visual C++ for development in native code or in code that contains both native as well as managed components. As well as the MFC. For MFC development, it provides a set of wizards for creating and customizing MFC boilerplate code. And creating GUI applications using MFC.

Visual C++ can also use the Visual Studio forms designer to design UI graphically. Visual C++ can also be used with the Windows API. It also supports the use of intrinsic functions.

Which are functions recognized by the compiler itself and not implemented as a library. Intrinsic functions are used to expose the SSE. Instruction set of modern CPUs.

Visual C++ also includes the OpenMP. Microsoft Visual C#, Microsoft's implementation of the C#. NET Framework, along with the language services that lets the Visual Studio IDE support C# projects. While the language services are a part of Visual Studio, the compiler is available separately as a part of the.

The Visual C# 2008, 2010 and 2012 compilers support versions 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0 of the C# language specifications, respectively. Visual C# supports the Visual Studio Class designer, Forms designer, and Data designer among others.

Language and associated tools and language services. It was introduced with Visual Studio. Microsoft has positioned Visual Basic for Rapid Application Development. Visual Basic can be used to author both console applications as well as GUI applications. Like Visual C#, Visual Basic also supports the Visual Studio Class designer, Forms designer, and Data designer among others. Microsoft Visual Web Developer is used to create web sites, web applications. Visual Web Developer can use the Visual Studio Web Designer to graphically design web page layouts. Azure DevOps is intended for collaborative software development. Projects and provides version control.

Work planning and tracking, data collection, and reporting. It also includes the Team Explorer which is integrated inside Visual Studio. On 10 September 2018, Microsoft announced a rebranding of Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) to Azure DevOps Services.

And Team Foundation Server (TFS) to Azure DevOps Server. Visual FoxPro is a data-centric object-oriented.

(originally known as FoxBASE) which was developed by Fox Software beginning in 1984. Visual FoxPro is tightly integrated with its own relational database engine, which extends FoxPro's xBase capabilities to support SQL. Visual FoxPro is a full-featured. That does not require the use of an additional general-purpose programming environment. In 2007, Visual FoxPro was discontinued after version 9 Service Pack 2.

It was supported until 2015. Microsoft Visual SourceSafe is a source control. Package oriented towards small software-development projects. The SourceSafe database is a multi-user, multi-process file-system database, using the Windows file system database primitives to provide locking and sharing support. All versions are multi-user, using SMB.

However, with Visual SourceSafe 2005, other client-server. Modes were added, Lan Booster and VSS Internet which used HTTP. Visual SourceSafe 6.0 was available as a stand-alone product. And was included with Visual Studio 6.0, and other products such as Office Developer Edition.

Visual SourceSafe 2005 was available as a stand-alone product and included with the 2005 Team Suite. Has superseded VSS as Microsoft's recommended platform for source control. Microsoft Visual J++ was Microsoft. S implementation of the Java. Language (with Microsoft-specific extensions) and associated language services.

It was discontinued as a result of litigation. And the technology was recycled into Visual J#, Microsoft's Java compiler for.

J# was available with Visual Studio 2005 (supported until 2015) but was discontinued in Visual Studio 2008. Visual InterDev was used to create web applications using Microsoft Active Server Pages.

It supports code completion and includes database. It has been replaced with Microsoft Visual Web Developer. Microsoft Visual Studio is available in the following editions or SKUs. The Community edition was announced on 12 November 2014, as a new free version, with similar functionality to Visual Studio Professional. Prior to this date, the only free editions of Visual Studio were the feature-limited Express variants.

Unlike the Express variants, Visual Studio Community supports multiple languages, and provides support for extensions. Individual developers have no restrictions on their use of the Community edition. The following uses also allow unlimited usage: contributing to Open Source projects, academic research, in a classroom learning environment and for developing and testing device drivers for the Windows operating system. All other use by an organization depends on whether you are classified as an Enterprise (more than 250 employees / 1 Million+ in revenue, per Microsoft).

Non-Enterprises may use up to 5 copies without restriction, user number 6 and higher require a commercial license; Enterprise organizations require a commercial license for use outside of the noted exceptions. Visual Studio Community is oriented towards individual developers and small teams. As of Visual Studio 2010, the Professional edition is the entry level commercial edition. Previously, a more feature restricted Standard edition was available.

It provides an IDE for all supported development languages. Support is available as MSDN Essentials or the full MSDN library.

Editing, and can create deployment packages that only use ClickOnce. It includes tools like Server Explorer and integration with Microsoft SQL Server. Windows Mobile development support was included in Visual Studio 2005 Standard, however, with Visual Studio 2008, it is only available in Professional and higher editions. Is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2010. In addition to the features provided by the Professional edition, the Enterprise edition provides a new set of software development, database development, collaboration, metrics, architecture, testing and reporting tools. The Test Professional edition was introduced with Visual Studio 2010. Its focus is the dedicated tester role. It includes support for the management of test environments, the ability to start and report on tests and to connect to Azure DevOps. It does not include support for development or authoring of tests. The first version of Visual Studio was Visual Studio 97. 3.5 - 4.8. 3.5 - 4.7.2. 2.0 - 4.6.1. 2.0 - 4.5.1. 2.0 - 4.5. 2.0 - 4.0. 2.0, 3.0, 3.5.
