My company is migrating from XP to Windows 7. Can anyone please let me know if Visual studio 2005 and sql server 2005 standard edition are compatible with Windows 7?

When I was installing SQL Server 2005 64 bit on Windows Server 2008 R2, I received a notice informing the software Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 has known compatibility issues with this version of Windows.
So how can I get around these problems?
I need to use Visual Studio 2005 to create the Integration Services packages.
Also, I need to migrate directories of Integration Services packages from a server with SQL Server 2005 32 bit on Windows Server 2003 32 bit for a server with SQL Server 2005 64 bit on Windows Server 2008 R2. How can I proceed to do this?
Thanks in advance.
my big question is :
Is it possible to use SQL Compact Edition 3.5 with Visual Studio 2005 ?
We have one big .Net CFÃÂ application which need to run on CE 2003 SE and Windows Mobil 5.0. It would be great if we only need one Package (CAB) for both types of devices.
Any hacks to get SQL Compact Edition 3.5 working with Visual Studio 2005 are welcome.
Last year I had Vista on machine with Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 running fine. Last week I decided to wipe the hard disk, install Windows 7 and make the move to Visual Studio 2010. I still need SQL Server 2005 to be able to test code for clients
Anyway, Visual Studio 2010 Professional went on OK. This installed SQL Server 2008 Epxress.
I then try to install SQL Server 2005. I know that there is a compatibility problem, so following advice from other sources, I want to install it without running the server, then install SQL Server 2005 SP3. Then I should be up and running.
The problem is that even though I make sure the 'Start SQL Server' check box is UNchecked, part way through the installation it throws up an error saying it can't start the server and this part of the installation is unrolled.
I've tried running 'setup.exe SKUUPGRAGE=1' which gets rid of the only warning I was getting up to this point, but the setup seems to insist on running the server even though I tell it not to. So I don't get a chance to run SP3 on it.
I wonder if the problem is that SQL Server 2008 Epxress is already installed but can't see an easy way of uninstalling it. It doesn't appear as an uninstall option using the Visual Studio 2010 disk and if I look at uninstall programs I get the f
I've a problem with my Visual Studio.
On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.

2005 was a truly exciting year for us here at MSDN Magazine. We launched a new magazine. We covered all sorts of amazing advances for the programmer, courtesy of Visual Studio 2005. We lost a couple of weeks, because of that dodgy falafel cart on 49th Street.
When Visual Studio 2005 ships, it will include a major upgrade to the Visual C++ Libraries that was the result of a complete security review of the functions contained in the C Runtime Library, Standard C++ Library, ATL, and MFC.
