Connector/Net working with Visual Studio 2008 beta 2? Oh yeah!

Microsoft says that Visual Studio packages are binary compatible from 2005 so any packages that loaded successfully into VS 2005 should work in VS 2008.  Err, no.  At least not with VS 2008 beta 2.  I admit it didn't take much of a change to fix things, but it wasn't seamless.

So, I just committed a patch to our trunk repository that enables Connector/Net in VS 2008 beta 2.  Here's a shot of it running.

This trunk repository will eventually be our 5.2 release and you can grab a sneak peek by pulling a snapshot from here

  4. Am I alone waiting for VS2008 support? The 5.2 snapshot hasn't changed since August 28th. I haven't been able to use MySQL provider with VS2008. Is there a way to implement support for VS2008 in version 5.1?

  5. Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 provides an industry-leading developer experience for Windows Vista, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and the Web. In addition, it continues in the Microsoft tradition of development language innovation.

  6. Thus far, I've been avoiding installing Visual Studio 2008 on my desktop for one reason... I am dreading going back to the dual Visual Studio version days. I hated back when Visual Studio 2005 came out and used to constantly be switching between 2003 and 2005.

    Intel today released the long-awaited beta version of its Parallel Studio development tools, available as a free download.

    This set of plug-ins to Microsoft's Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) promises to help ease developers into the now-standard world of multi-threaded applications running on multi-core processors.

    VS 2008 and Visual Web Developer 2008 Express can be installed side-by-side with VS 2005. .NET 3.5 Beta2 also includes a go-live license which allows you to build and deploy applications into production.

    People often ask me for suggestions on how best to upgrade from previous betas of Visual Studio 2008. In general I'd recommend uninstalling the Beta2 bits explicitly. As part of this you should uninstall Visual Studio 2008 Beta2, .NET Framework Beta2, as well as the Visual Studio Web Authoring Component (these are all separate installs and need to be uninstalled separately). I then usually recommend rebooting the machine after uninstalling just to make sure everything is clean before you kick off the new install. You can then install the final release of VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 on the machine.

  11. As powerful as Visual Studio is, there’s still room for more. Developers often look for better ways to reach more information within Visual Studio, as well as tools that improve productivity when developing applications.

  12. In general, Visual Studio packages are backward-compatible with earlier versions. Most VSPackages that work in Visual Studio 2005 will continue to work in Visual Studio 2008 without modification. Most services, entry points, and events maintain compatibility, but there are some exceptions, which are listed later in this topic. Programmatic interfaces also maintain compatibility generally, but elements of some interfaces may change and require source code modification to work with Visual Studio 2008.

    Needless to say, a brief episode of profanity ensued. But fear not: after a bit of googling and struggling, I managed to sort it out.

  14. The software giant had previously announced that the new software would not be ready until 2010. Windows Vista, Microsoft's current operating system launched in November 2006, was criticised for being a memory hogger and incompatible with some pre-Vista hardware and software.

  16. Visual Studio is a great tool on its own and it can be extended. By using the Visual Studio SDK (VS SDK), one can create powerful extensions to fit almost any developers’ needs.

    Anyone who has developed a package for Visual Studio has run into the dreaded package load failure. Even after you ship you can have customers that run into this issue because the customer may be experimenting with beta releases of products that my break your package. This issue has risen enough for us internally that I'm blogging three things you can do to look for clues on what went wrong.

  21. Visual Studio 2008 installer, showing an error on every component . I've been playing with Windows 7 Beta for just under a week now. NET scheduler library to integrate it into a project I'm working on. The project has been using MySQL Connector/.NET version 5.1 for its database needs for a while now

    Should I stay or should I go … with Visual Studio 2005 or 2008 is the question in this particular case. One of my customers is still on Visual Studio 2003 and they are wondering whether to upgrade to VS 2005 or to VS 2008.

    I just looked at the contents of the MySql .NET Connector this morning. There are a couple of files dates from October 28, 2004 @ 8:00 am. BTW, it is 10:10 am in my timezone). I think that this might be a new version of the connector.
