VS.NET Pro vs VS.Net Dev Edition

By Shellbot ·
STupid question..
I'm completely new to .Net, so go easy on me for this. Will the Pro edition of VS.NET allow me to create DLL's ? I've been looking everywhere and am just not finding a clear answer. As well, if I have a web application using DLL's, would I be able to modify said application with the Pro version. No way my company will pay for Dev edition. Thanks to anyone who can help me !!!

You should be able to go to file|new|project and select class library template. This works for C# and VB and appears to be valid for C++ and J#.

You can also use the command line by using the following:

csc /target:library /out:MyLibrary.DLL file1.cs

followed by any additional files. For VB or J# use vbc and vjc command respectively instead of csc (and the file extensions will be different). For C++ use the cl /LD command.

For more information see

Hope this helps . . .

Thanks, but its more a case of not how I do it, but which version will allow me to do it ? Is that the Professional Edition you are quoting from, or are you using the Developer Edition ? Pro costs 500 Euros, Dev cost 2300 Euros..if i can modify or build DLL's in Pro its a huge money saver, as my company will be reluctant to pay for full Dev edition.
