Using EMDK with Visual Studio 2008 doesn't work

I have downloaded the EMDK version 2.9 but it says "Cannot find Visual Studio" when I run it

I have downloaded and installed Visual Studio 2008.  It runs successfully.  How can I get EMDK to install?

Make sure you read through

Make sure you read through all of the requirements in the release notes.Release Notes - EMDK for .NET v2.9

Note this line especially.

* The edition of Visual Studio installed must support mobile device development. Express editions of Visual Studio do not support mobile device development. Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition does not support mobile device development.

Thank you, I missed that bit

Is Visual Studio 2008 still available to buy? Microsoft no longer supply it.

It still shows up in my MSDN

It still shows up in my MSDN subscription as a download, so it is still available.
