Re: visual basic dot net 2005 esxpress

        Hi.
rick.
now, yes, uses the sql server 2008, and i think, sql server 2008 did not 
like some of the sql databases that i got off the net, for the book, off the 
cd i was provided, and yep, need to use sql server 2005, and vb.dot net 
2005.
and got a lot of my in class exercises on cd, so can copy them back over.
the main problem, is that i do not have a spare 100 hours to redo all the 
chapters, and the examples and the case studies and the exericses you wer 
ehelping me with, unless, i go in and save the code modules and the 
documents then  i could then rebuild all the examples, and the exericses and 
the case studies, just rebuild the interfaces.
then just copy and paste the code back in, so that would be a quicker way to 
go about that.
so what would you recommend this course of action?
should i go down that route, uninstall vs 2008, and then install the 2005 
and what do you recommend.
if i did it this way, would short cut a lot of time and effort, and quickly 
able to rebuild the applications for the chapters in the book, the examples, 
exercises and case studies.
okay, if you recommend that route, then suggest that to me.
my lecturer is using 2005, and the book is using 2005, the only reason why i 
got 2008, was that i did not have internet access, and a adaptive tech 
person, who sold me jaws in tasmania, burned a copy of vs 2008 in the first 
place, even though i did request 2005.
oh well, lessons learned.
okay let me know.
what i should do and proceed from here onwards.
cheers Marvin.

Hi Inthane:
If that's the case he has a problem. My guess he will have to remove the
2008 modules, and then load up some version of 2005. I remember he also was
messing with the DataBases so that might be problematic as well depending on
which version he ended up using. The last thing I can think of is that he
uses Access DataBases instead of the Sql Server DataBases as defined in his
Projects and that might cause problems for his Instructor as well if he is
not familiar with their setup and use. My guess the only way he is going to
get it working is to work directly with his Instructor to match up the
versions of everything if he is to just send him a Project to load up and
review per the original Course and Project requirements. I don't think I
have any answers except to find out what his Instructor recommends. Sounds
like he will have to uninstall everything 2008 including the DataBase
systems. Then install everything that came with the original course and
ReWrite his applications using the correct languages and DataBases if he
wants to be in sync with the rest of the class. Other than that I wouldn't
recommend doing all that removing and ReInstallation as it might cause some
real headaches if not done in the correct order.
