Ahh, ok. Yes, I believe it does work with VS 2008 Standard.
No, for versions where NORMA works, there is no difference in how it works.
For VS2010, refer to this: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions
There may be no Standard Edition with VS 2010 but I thought VS 2008 came in Express, Standard and Professional editions, amongst others.
Is that correct?
Does NORMA run on VS 2008 Standard Edition?
Does NORMA work any different
NORMA does not work with (free) VS Express editions. There is no "Standard" edition.
Above Express, there's Professional, Premium and Ultimate and variants with test and/or MSDN features. All should work with NORMA.
Thank you to both Ken and Matt.
Sounds like VS 2008 is the way to go.
I assume there are no differences, in NORMA terms, between the standard and professional editions?
The VS2008 version installs one additional code generator, but it isn't something I've put any time into in the last couple of years, so it isn't a major bonus at this point. There are not other feature differences between the two products. There are minor differences in text rendering because the underlying design ...
I have VS 2008 pro and VS 20210 pro but I stopped using VS2005 some years ago.
If there isn't much price difference between VS 2005 and VS 2008 then go for VS 2008.
I'll ask Matt to comment on the VS2005/2008 differences.
Thanks for that Ken.
So would there be any great advantage in obtaining one of the later versions of Visual Studio or would VS 2005 suffice for NORMA?
I'm trying to decide whether to buy VS 2005, which is quite cheap, or whether there's any justification for obtaining one of the later versions of VS.
The read-me file for each version shows the details of the differences.
VS2010 uses a different technical architecture and Matt noted the following unresolved issues in VS2010 as at the October 2011 release. If the .orm designer is opened simultaneously with more than one
other file (such as when opening a solution) and is the active file ...
I see that NORMA is available for three different versions of Visual Studio; namely, 2005, 2008 and 2010.
Is there any difference, functional or otherwise, in NORMA on the three different Visual Studio versions?
For anyone who may be interested....
For most of my projects I use colour coding to visually distinguish a 'basic attribute' of an entity or fact within a model.
Example 1 - Modifying an existing (production) model.
Existing and unchanged: entity - black line, yellow fill; fact - black line work.
Proposed Modified: entity - ...
