I am using Visual Studio 2010 Express with ArcGIS 10.1, which is supposed to support the ArcObjects SDK.  I can see all of the Desktop templates, but the "Server Object Extenstions" templates are empty in "New Project".  I read somewhere, and if I remember correctly, these will not appear unless Framework 3.5 is targeted.  The problem is that VS2010 Express by default targets the 4.0 framework and I cannot change that until AFTER I start a new project and by then its too late to apply the template.  Not sure if this is the reason as I dont think the template are getting copied to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\VCSExpress\ItemTemplates\ArcGIS\Server Object Extensions" either.

Am I really going to need to buy an outdated version of Visual Studio Professional 2010 to migrate ONE SOE????
