Default This book is a waste of money

In many places in the book it clearly states that Visual Basic STANDARD edition is needed for the book. It states this on the Back Cover, inside the front cover, on Page 3 and many other places.

So what happens after I've paid $$$ for the book and more $$$ for the STANDARD edition software?

The VERY FIRST thing you do is "Create a new VB.NET Class Library"...

Well as anyone who has tried it knows - you can't create class libraries in the Standard edition. I guess no-one ever tried following the instructions or checking the text??

Complete waste of $$$ if you ask me since I can't upgrade the Standard edition to Professional without throwing away the initial investment.

A class library is nothing but a related set of classes packed in one or more assemblies. If you have a VB.NET compiler (and the .NET Framework, of course), all you need is Notepad. But if you can't do THAT, then you are right: the book was a complete waste of money .... for you.

Try this:
- Create a WinExe.
-Exit VS.net.
-Open the VBproj or CSProj file (I use C#) in Notepad.
-Their will be a PojectType. Make that eqaul to "Local". There will also be an OutputType. Make that equal to "Library".

When this project compiles it will be a dll. You will also now be able to add it as a reference from Solution Explorer.
