.NET Configuration Tools (caspol.exe) with visual studio 2008 express?

Hello list, this is my very first question about .NET as I've started studying it only recently.
I've installed VS C# 2008 Express Edition and I wonder where to find .NET Configuration Tools (caspol.exe). It's generally mentioned to be reachable through Administration Tools, but it isn't there.

Someone says that the tool is shipped with .NET 2.0 SDK. Should I install it? How would this hurt my actual installations (VS 2008, .NET 3.5, etc.)?

thanks very much,

Problem installing SQL 2008 Tools with Visual Studio 2008 Team System Suite

I'm setting-up my development environment on a new laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I installed Visual Studio Team System (MSDN disk 4405)  and then VS 2008 SP1. These installed without error.

Next I installed SQL Express 2008, but had a problem with running the standard install from www.microsoft.com/express/sql/download - message stating that SQL 2008 with Tools was incompatable with SQL 2005 (which was installed as part of the VSTS 2008 install - instance SQLEXPRESS). Therefore, I used the custom install link on this webpage to install SQL Express 2008 with SP1 - X64. I selected the 'New Standalone Instal or Add Features' and it completed without error - instance MSSQLSERVER2008. I selected the install with SP1 because this seemed to be required for a PC with VS 2008 installed (see other threads), hoping that it would be possible to install the tools later. However, when I came to install the SQL Express 2008 Tools (custom install page install SQL Express 2008 with Tools) I hit the following problems:

1. I got message stating that there was a compatability issue which required me to run SQL 2008 SP1 after the install - funny, I had just installed SQL 2008 SP1!

Ignoring the message, I proceeded with the install sel

SQL Server 2008 Express Management Studio fails to install because it thinks visual studio is instal


I tried to install SQL Server 2008 R1 Express with Tools on Windows Server 2008 R2. It installed, but the management studio failed to install because it said I already had Visual Studio installed and it needed Visual Studio service pack 1 before Management Studio could install.

Visual Studio is nowhere to be found in Programs and Features, and when I try to install Visual Studio SP1, it won't install, saying:

A compatible version of Visual Studio 2008 was not detected on the system. This update is designed for only the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (ENU) product family, and is not compatible with any Express editions.

Though I can't find any Express version of SP1 to try, and there is no SP1 in windows update.

crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..
