VS2005 still needed for unmanaged XP code

Visual Studio 2008 dropped the Platform SDK and replaced it with the Vista SDK. That means that to develop unmanaged code that targets both XP and Vista you'll still need to use Visual Studio 2005.

I discovered this when I couldn't find ShFolder.h in my Visual Studio2008 directory. Thankfully, I still have Visual Studio 2005 installedas well.
