2008 version possible?

Before I dive into the code, is there any chance of getting this working on VS/TFS2008, or is it using specific 2010 features?

Hi!  The answer is kind of yes and no.  The code is not using any specific 2010 feature which is not available on 2008.  But it uses reflection to get access to internal code, and this is different in  2008 and 2010.  Also, there are changes to namespaces and assemblies between 2008 and 2010. Some of the parts of the code were based on an example from 2008 - which by the way didnt even work properly, but that's how Lars (who did this part) saw the differences between the versions.  

So you would have to dig into those parts with a good reflector and using the debugger.  That's the way it was done.   We will not put any effort to port it to 2008, so if you feel like, that would be great.

Thanks for the reply.

I've downloaded the code and will take a look if i can get it working or not.
