Project Templates in Visual C# Editions

When you create a new project, icons in the New Project dialog box and the New Web Site dialog box represent the available project types and their templates. The project template you choose determines the output type and other options available for that project. Not all project templates are available in all editions of Visual C#.

NoteNote:

Documentation for features that are not available in Visual C# Express Edition or Visual C# Standard Edition may be included in the documentation set for these editions.

The following table shows which Visual C# project templates are available in the different editions of Visual Studio 2008 and which version of the .NET Framework the project template can target.
