ESRI : “Visual Studio 2008 will be a fully supported development platform for working with the .NET, VC++, and C++ APIs at ArcGIS 9.3. However, at this time, we do not recommend installing VS2008 and working with the ArcGIS Engine Controls. Our tests have revealed a significant issue (NIM013454) that would prevent developers from successfully using Visual Studio 2008 to build ArcGIS controls-based applications with the Tech Preview version of ArcGIS 9.3. Additionally the installation of Visual Studio 2008 also affects the application exe’s compiled with Visual Studio 2005 so these exe’s will crash when displaying a control. Uninstalling Visual Studio 2008 does not resolve the issue. We are working on a solution to this issue; if testing proves successful, the fix will be included in the forthcoming Beta of the ArcGIS 9.3 release.”
Does any one know/tested whether this issue has been fixed in 9.3 Beta? . Please comment if you have an answer.
