ASP .NET Environment Setup (Installing Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition) tutorials

  • ASP.Net provides an abstraction layer on top of HTTP on which the web applications are built. It provides high-level entities like classes and components within an object-oriented paradigm.

  • The key development tool for building ASP.Net applications and front ends is Visual Studio. In these tutorials, we will work on Visual Studio 2008.

  • Visual Studio is an integrated development environment for writing, compiling and debugging the code. It provides a complete set of development tools for building ASP.Net web applications, web services, desktop applications and mobile applications.

Installing Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition

  • In this step-by-step tutorial we will install Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition on Windows XP Pro SP2.  You may want to try the ‘lite’ and free version of VS 2008, VS 2008 Express Editions. There is also a trial version for VS Professional Edition. If you are student, then you can try downloading free versions for most of the Microsoft products through the DreamSpark, however this opportunity currently is limited to several countries only.

  • Any pre requirement prior to the installation will be checked and verified by the setup wizard.

  • You need to have the VS 2008 DVD. Insert the DVD into the DVD drive, the Autorun will be executed, displaying the following Windows form. Click the View ReadMe button to read the readme information. Then click the Install Visual Studio 2008 link to start the installation.
