The only problem is that you cannot build ObjectARX with that version.....  :-(

As for AutoCAD development: there should not be a problem writing .NET applications for AutoCAD with Visual Studio 2008 - especially as it allows you to build applications for prior versions of the .NET Framework - but you should not attempt to build ObjectARX applications. The supported C++ compiler for ObjectARX in AutoCAD 2007 & 2008 is Visual Studio 2005

Hi Kerry

Im just using the express editions as I haven't gotten far enough into it yet to warrent the Pro version.  Someday soon, I hope to be using C# enough that I need to buy the Pro version

As far as I know nothing much has changed on the C++ front. From what I heard, MS is waiting for the new C++0x standard. I also heard that a new killer MFC is in the works.  :kewl:
