With the recent release of Visual Studio 2008, are there any known compatibility issues with the CAB/SCSF guidance/extensions packages?

Follow the steps in these links:


For VS 2008 Release you have to change devenv.exe.config (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe.config) like this:

<assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.VisualStudio.TemplateWizardInterface" publicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a" culture="neutral" />
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />

Worked perfect for me.

Hope it works for you too!

Also, you can see this post about how to install the SC-SF source code:

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the devenv.exe.config hack, I had been fighting with the templates not showing in VS2008 RTM all morning. It worked for me as well. I can now work on my CAB/SCSF project this weekend.
