- My manager had been told by a Sales Rep and Tech Support person of a huge software company late last year that support of their add-in for MS Visual Studio ended with the Visual Studio 2008 edition and would not be available for Visual Studio 2010 or 2012. As a result, an expensive and lengthy initiative had been planned to convert data from the old format into another currently supported product.
