    hi

    does the sitefinity 4.0 beta 2 work if you only have visual studio 2008 installed? When I try to edit the project in visual studio I get an error referring to the following folder.

    C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\WebApplications

    I've only got v9.0 present on my machine. Is this a folder only there if you have vs2010 installed?

    Hello martin,

    Sitefinity BETA 2 uses ASP.NET 4.0 which requires Visual Studio 2010.

    P.S.  Visual Studio Web Express 2010 can be downloaded (for free) and works fine with Sitefinity 4.0 Projects.

    So is sitefinity 4.0 never going to support VS2008?

    If so is it still possible to develop custom modules using VS2008 and use them in SiteFinity 4.0?

    Hi martin,

    You cannot use Visual Studio 2008 to create projects under ASP.NET Framework 4.0. With Visual Studio 2008 you can build your projects against .NET Framework 2.0 or 3.5. This applies to each other .net project.

    Kind regards,

    I have SF 4.0 Beta 2 installed alongside VS 2008, and I can successfully compile the project using 3.5 framework. I did have to change project file to pull "v9.00" MSBuild project file.

    Just open SitefinityWebApp.csproj in the text editor, and find the following line:
    <Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath32)\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v10.0\WebApplications\Microsoft.WebApplication.targets" />

    Replace v10.0 with v9.0 in it. That's all.

    I don't think that beta 2 is available any more via the downloads section. As it has gone live now.

    http://www.sitefinity.com/account/your-products/trial-product-versions/trial-single-download.aspx?pmvid=2288&pid=463

    This link has all the available versions I think.

    Hello,

    Visual Studio 2008 does not support Silverlight and WF4 , so these are major features that you will not be able to edit with the hacks you are making here.

    Yeah I gave up on my attempts to use version 4 with visual studio 2008, we are just going to stick with evaluating version 3.7 of sitefinity, until we get upgraded to visual studio 2010, which should hopefully be soon.
