    Hi George,

    Sure, you can use VB.NET as your development language. No problem.
    Although most documentation and samples are in C#, you could easily convert the code, if that is needed: http://converter.telerik.com/

    Regards,
    Daniel

    Hello,

    Sitefinity does allow you to use VB.NET as your development language.for the purpose you have to convert your sitefinity project to be VB.NET project as by default it is created as C# project. For the purpose follow the guide in this KB article.
    Note you can only use VB.NET or C# in your Sitefinity projects as mixing them will not work.

    Well, just look into the bin directory of you SF installation, right-click the Telerik.Web.UI.dll and choose 'Properties'. You'll find the version under the 'Details' tab, Product Version.

    After a project is converted, will the upgrade project in the Project Manager upgrade the VB project?
    Thanks,

    Dear John 

    I don't know the answer about your last question. But can tell you that I started of with VB and VB still make a lot more sense to me then C#. However since most of the resources found are C# I started to leave my Sitefinity Projects in c# and bit the bullet and started adjusting.

    Especially for small projects that is nor problem at all. Most of the time http://converter.telerik.com/ is a good starting point.

    It might be worth considering and avoid future hassles.

    For as far as I can see the projects.xml file contains the projects. You can see the LocalPath attribute always refers to the root directory of your project (in HTTP and FileSystem mode), so probably the Project Manager searches for any project called 'SitefinityWebApp' ?

    So, if you really use the Project Manager as a starting point to fire up Visual Studio, I think you'll be allright.

    Just try it out?

    Regards,
    Daniel

    Can I create MVC projects in VB .NET?  I believe the documentation said I couldn't, but I find that hard to believe.
