Well, Visual Studio 2005 needs a patch to run on VISTA, otherwise it crashes frequently. Also, it needs Service Pack 1. I would advice you to install Visual Studio 2008 + Service Pack 1 with SQL Server 2005 + Service Pack 3. Both Service packs can be found
out on Microsoft downloads site. Or just google them. By using the latest verison, you will also have ability to test out new features like LINQ.
