  2. There is NO service pack for VS 2008 !

    Perhaps you tried to install the SP1 for VS2005 onto VS 2008 ??

    There is now. So does anyone know why Visual Studio 2008 sp1 doesn't show up
    in my Microsoft Update page? I also have Visual Studio 2005 installed on the
    same pc and it does have an entry on Microsoft update.

  4. Perhaps it hasn't been released to Microsoft Update yet?
