Default Class library template does not exist - normal?

I am reading Beginning VB.Net 2003 (quite a good book I think, easy to follow; just an unusual number of typos for a Wrox book, it reads like it was put together in a hurry) and in Chapter 12 "Building Class Libraries" it says to create a new project from the Class Library template. But I have no such template.* Is this normal? I have VB.Net 2003 Standard Edition, v7.1.3088 and Framework 1.1 v1.1.4322.

So Chapter 12 was a wash, and so is Chapter 13 "Creating your own custom controls," for the same reason.

I expect that my ide will look a little different from the screenshots becuase they most likely did not use Standard Edition to do the book. But isn't it supposed to work as-is with SE? What can I do?



* The templates I have are:

Windows Application
ASP.Net Web Application
ASP.Net Web service
ASP.Net Mobile web Application
Console Application

I believe you are correct in that your edition of VB.Net does not support creating class libraries.

Thearon,

Do you have a suggestion on what I should buy instead to complete the book? Visual Studio is terribly expensive, but neither do I want to spend too little as I did the first time. Thanks.

It annoys me very much that the books says you can use VB.Net Standard Edition. Wrong! You can complete a little over half the book using that version.
