Is it possible to use Pro/Toolkit with Visual Studio 2005, or Visual Studio 2008? Just received a laptop upgrade and neglected to ask this question before the new software was installed.

Jim, You have to remember to separate the IDE from the compiler and linker. The Visual Studio software is an IDE that is bundled with a compiler and linker from a specific version of the Windows Platform SDK. Here is an example scenario.
I have Wildfire 3.0 and MSVC .NET 2008. Can I compile a Pro/TOOLKIT Wildfire 3.0 application?
However; I need to execute some extra steps in order to do this successfully: Download the Windows Server 2003 Platform SDK R2. This contains the compiler, linker, and runtime libraries that PTC supports. The software matrix for WF 3.0 Pro/TOOLKIT states that it supports .NET 2003. The SDK mentioned also contains this compiler, linker, and libraries. Open an environment (command prompt) for the architecture and build that you desire. These environment batch files come with the Platform SDK and are accessible on the Start menu. Start MSVC .NET 2008 and configure it to use the compiler, linker, and libraries of the Step #2 environment. In the environment command prompt window type: devenv.exe /USEENV (assuming the path to devenv.exe is in your PATH variable). This will start MSVC .NET 2008 IDE pointing to the proper "stuff".
You can also use this process for any of the Express edition IDE's.
