Issue Details

Does Measurement Studio support the Visual Studio Express Editions?


Measurement Studio does support the Visual Studio Express Editions. You'll be able to use the .NET controls and libraries. However, since Visual Studio Express Editions do not allow third-part integration, there is no support for Measurement Studio integration.
