Visual Studio 2008 express and RTC 4.0.3

Angelo Corna (26358381) | asked Sep 05 '13, 10:49 a.m.
Like explained in this link
Visual Studio 2008 express edition is not supported with RTC 2.0.x.

I can't find the same information regarding RTC 4.0.3.
The RTC 4.0.3 System Requirements page refers only a support for
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 with .NET 3.5 SP1
and future fixpacks

Is Visual Studio 2008 Express edition supported with RTC 4.0.3?

Thanks in advance.

Last time I checked, Visual Studio Express does not allow you to load plug-ins, which is what you would need to do to integrate an SCM Provider, so this is not possible.  I believe the most recent edition of VS Express has support for TFS built-in ... but that is just for TFS ... not for your choice of SCM Providers.

Until Microsoft changes this policy, no SCM Provider can be integrated into VS Express (except for back door techniques that would violate your VS Express license).

Hi Angelo,
I am not sure about the editions supported. However this is a missing gap in the documentation. I have created defect for that:
