    Sorry mrproper... in fact that message was posted local to my own bbs... not sure what sbbs did to send it to DevNet, but I do apologise for that fiasco! I'd like to say that it's sorted out, but I have no idea what happened.

    These messages were sitting happily in my local message groups for months until yesterday...

    In any event you may want to try out Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition. Link is here: http://www.microsoft.com/Express/VB/

    2010 is now open for public beta testing, so you can download that as well for free, I believe.

    Kind regards,

    :) Thanks for your patience everyone.

    On another note--I have installed VS2010, but not yet use it. Nightfox, I think you mentioned that you've used it before? What's new with 2010?

    I must be the only idiot in the world to have actually purchased VS2008 Professional Edition, and now they've giving most of it away for free! D'oh.

    On the plus side I can legitimately use as many SQL 2005 instances as I want, plus it comes with the SQL Developer edition which is almost the same as Enterprise... tasty!

    Kind regards,
