Posted by dariosantarelli on March 14, 2008

The patterns & practices Enterprise Library 3.1 is a library of application blocks published for Visual Studio 2005 and designed to assist developers with common enterprise development challenges. Application blocks are a type of guidance, provided as source code that can be used “as is,” extended, or modified by developers to use on enterprise development projects. This release of Enterprise Library includes application blocks for Caching, Cryptography, Data Access, Exception Handling, Logging, Policy Injection, Security and Validation.
In this post you can find how to to get the integrated tool to work in Visual Studio 2008. Simply you have to run a registry script that will change the keys where VS looks to load the integrated tool package. After you run the script, you will need to run devenv /setup from the Visual Studio 2008 command prompt. You can download the file from the EntLibContrib project on CodePlex.

P.S.: If you already have the Enterprise Library 3.0 installed, you must uninstall it before installing the Enterprise Library 3.1.
