Hi, Been looking about and cannot find an answer to this. Is it possible to view the class diagram for your project in the express edition of VS? If not, are there any plugins etc. for it which would allow me to do so? If not, does anyone have any ideas of how to generate the diagram without doing it by hand?

I created a VC# 2008 Express project then loaded it with VS 2008 Standard and added a class diagram.
When I re-loaded it in VC# Express, the class diagram FILE was there, but the content looked like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ClassDiagram MajorVersion="1" MinorVersion="1">
  <Class Name="TestCDiagram.CThisThat">
    <Position X="0.5" Y="0.75" Width="1.5" />
  <Font Name="Tahoma" Size="8.25" />

It might be easier to find a VS2008 standard (for cheap somewhere) than to create or find a package that will show the actual diagram in Express.

Thanks for the reply. I guess the best things in life are not free after all! :)
