View Full Version : Reasonable to use SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition with Visual Studio 2010 Pro?

I am considering an upgrade to Visual Studio 2010 Pro from my Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition while the price is still $299.

I have successfully used Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition along with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition to produce websites with database back-ends. I am assuming that I will still be able to do this with Visual Studio 2010 Pro without any heart-stopping transitional problems. Anyone have any experiences/advice about this?

And just for the record, I cannot afford Visual Studio 2010 Premium which I believe would make this a moot point.

Hey darrenlc,

What's the reason you want to upgrade to 2010? Because if it's simply to "keep up with technology", then I say don't even waste your money.

Regards,
Mike
