Studio vs Developer

Postby Superfreak3 » Fri Nov 06, 2009 10:33 am

Hi there,

I see the big difference between the Studio and Developer versions is the lack of the Dialog Designer capability in the later. Is this to say that canned dialogs can not be edited at all (add, move controls, etc.) in the Developer version?

Any expansion on the Dialog Designer and what its lacking means for the Developer verison would be GREATLY Appreciated!

Thanks Much!

Studio has a dialog designer, integrated debugger, and compiler variables support as major technical advantages over Developer.

Licensing-wise, Studio lets you install the command line build environment on as many machines as necessary, without requiring additional licenses, or even a floating license! You will even be able to build simultaneously from the command line on all your build machines with a single, non-floating license.

These feature and licensing advantages are well worth the $500 price differential between Developer and Studio :)
