Q

No extensibility folders

I have been a user of VB6 and have recently purchased VB.NET Standard. I converted a program in VB6 to VB.NET using the wizard. Apparently, the about form isn't supported. An online search suggested using the Add-in wizard. The problem: When I go to Other Projects there is no extensibility folder (hence no add-in wizard) . The only folder is a database projects folder. Is the extensibility project folder not supported in VB standard or did I install incorrectly? If it is not supported - do you know of any work-around?
Unfortunately, Microsoft is somewhat vague when it comes to the actual functionality in this area with regard to VB.NET Standard Edition. The MS VB Website does say if you plan to migrate VB applications to VB.NET, you should be using VB.NET Professional (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/howtobuy/choosing.aspx). Also, the following KB article ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;317345) says that Visual Studio.NET is a requirement. Technically, VB.NET Standard and Visual Studio.NET are not the same product. I am only guessing, but I think you may be looking at upgrading to the minimum VS.NET available (which is VS.NET Professional).
