hi frens, i am using Visual Studio 2008 which has 2.0 and sqlserver 2005 inbuilt. i came to know that VS 2010 has included a new feature of using razor and 3.0 by default. i want to include razor in my VS 2008. how to perform such task please help me with suitable option?
with regards bishnu karki

You can't - Razor (and MVC3) runs only under .NET 4, which is not supported by VS2008.

5! :) you are faster than me..

Good point. I missed this. 5.
I somehow thought the OP was looking for information on Razor - did not notice 2008 at all.

@Abhinav: your third link provides clear System requirements..that is "ASP.NET 4; .NET 4"
Abhinav S 11-Dec-11 10:06am    
Yeah. In going through the question quickly I missed the OP had mentioned VS2008. :)
Monjurul Habib 11-Dec-11 10:07am    
np but your links says that :)
No, not just Razor but MVC 3 will not be supported in VS 2008. The reason is that MVC 3 is being compiled on .NET 4.0.

thank you
Have a look at Introducing “Razor” – a new view engine for ASP.NET [^].
Here is another introduction[^].

If you need more help on downloads, goto[^].

However, Razor only works for .Net 4.0. MVC3 does not work on 2008 as well.
