    Visual Basic .Net Standard versus Visual Studio .Net Pro


    What the heck is the difference between Visual Basic .Net Standard versus
    Visual Studio .Net Professional? For the life of me I can't get through the
    labyrinth of a website Microsoft has to find the side-by-side set of features.

    I'm mainly looking for the answer to "What will I get with VS .Net Pro that
    I do not get with VB .Net Standard?"

    Thanks All.

    Andy: My understanding is that VB.NET Standard ships with a modified IDE
    which supports only VB (although, because the .NET Framework is included,
    you can use the command-line compilers to compile code in other languages,
    such as C#). VS.NET fully supports for any .NET language, and includes C#
    and C++ in the package.

    Hello Phil,

    Thank you for the response. I assumed the language support was *the* major
    difference. However, I've been hearing about other major differences as well:

    * VBNS not including the VB migration assistant
    * VBNS cannot write server components with VBNS.
    * No Crystal Reports in VBNS.

    It's just that the features list is not well documented on the MS site (especially
    for comparison's sake), and noone seems to know the exact differences.

    Regards,
    -Andy
