    Question SDK Command Prompt


    I started a Visual Basic .NET class today. The first assignment requires the use of the SDK Command Prompt from the .NET Framework. According to the textbook, this should be located under Start>All Programs>Microsoft .NET Framework SDK v2.0>SDK Command Prompt. I do have the .NET 2.0 framework installed, yet no SDK menu exists under All Programs. I tried repairing and reinstalling the .NET Framework, but it didn't change. I did find a SDK directory in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK, but I'm not sure if the SDK prompt is located here or not. This almost seems like it would require the .NET Framework 2.0 Software Development Kit (all yours for an over 300 MB download), yet the textbook specifically states only Visual Basic Express 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0 are required. Could someone tell me where I can find the SDK command prompt?

    An "SDK command prompt" is just a standard Windows command prompt with some environment variables set. You can create your own by creating a shortcut that runs this command:

    cmd.exe /k "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat\"
