Microsoft Visual Studio

Hello Abb Users.

To develop R.A.B. application you need Visual Studio (2003 or 2005) Is it also possible to develop application with "Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express edition" or does it only work under "Visual Studio 2005 Professional Editions"?

Best Regards,



  • I believe that only the Professional Edition supports CE/Smart Device development, but I have not confirmed that by testing.

  • Update: Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition will also work, but none of the Express products are usable.
