Starting the IDE

VB.NET is one of the languages provided in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (VS 2008). To program in VB, you begin with starting the VS 2008 IDE. To start the IDE, do the following steps:

  1. Click the Start icon at the lower left corner of the desktop to open the Start menu (Figure 2-1).
  2. Highlight the Programs option by resting the mouse pointer on the item. A submenu should appear, as shown in Figure 2-1.
  3. Highlight the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (folder) option. Another submenu should appear. Again, see Figure 2-1.
  4. Click the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (program) option to open the VS 2008 IDE.
