We have an old product using Visual Studio 2008 (SP1) and SQL Server 2008.
Since SQL Server 2008 is not supported in Windows 10, we have to upgrade it to SQL Server 2017 or SQL Server 2019.
Can we sill use Visual Studio 2008 (SP1)?

    Hi @Tiger TFZ ,

    No.
    It only supports any edition before 2012 of SQL Server.
    Please refer to this doc for more details about how to update Visual Studio:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/update-visual-studio?view=vs-2019
    The latest version is Visual Studio 2019.

    BTW, after upgrading Visual Studio you should use the latest SQL server (2019), which is always correct.

    Best regards,
    Seeya
