Is Visual Studio 2010 really required?


#1

I recently purchased a nifty board and am looking forward to playing with it. I downloaded the GHI NETMF v4.1 SDK and in the ‘readme’ is says that 2010 is required.

I use VS 2008 and don’t want to spend gobs of money to buy VS 2010 as I don’t need it for anything else.

Is it REALLY required?

Do not spend any money, use Visual C# express which is free

Thank you. VS 2010 express is now installed and I’m about to try a ‘hello world’ app.

Just watch, I’ll like it so much, I’ll upgrade my professional installation.
