For thoseÂ developers who are using the SocketToolsÂ .NET Edition or SocketToolsÂ SecureÂ .NET Edition andÂ have downloaded Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2, we’ve releasedÂ an updatedÂ versionÂ of the assembliesÂ built using Visual Studio 2008Â that targetÂ the 3.5 Framework. This is a free update that is available to all developers who are currently usingÂ SocketTools 5.0:
It is important toÂ note that Visual Studio 2008 is currently a beta release, and should only be used for testing and evaluation purposes.Â We don’tÂ recommended that you install it on your primary development system. Instead, you should either install it on a test system, or download Virtual PC 2007 and install it on a virtual machine.
The archive that you download contains a ReadMe file that explains the steps that you need to take to install the updated SocketTools assemblies. When Visual Studio 2008 is released, a new version of the SocketTools .NET installer will also be published which contains the current version of these assemblies and example programs.
