User(s) can reproduce this bug
With VS2005, VC++ allowed installing the PowerToys to provide access to snippets within VS2008. Can you provide directions on how to get them to work within VS2008? Or is there a new PowerToys for VS2008 that provides the support for VC++?
Visual Studio 2008 (All Products and Editions)
Windows Server 2003
Operating System Language
Steps to Reproduce
use VS2008, try to use the Snippets, Only VB, C#, XML are available. Visual C++ was available within VS2005.
Visual C++ is not an available choice
Expected Visual C++ to be an available option
TAP Code (if applicable)

"We are currently focusing our efforts to ship this feature in an integrated way for our next release. In the meantime, we will not be changing the behavior of VS2008."
Looking at it with develeyes it's more like this:
#define IDE_VB 1 // VB got one, as it's the least powerful
#define IDE_VCSHARP 2 // C# got second, as it is a bit more powerful than VB, but still just a tiny bit.
#define IDE_VCPP 3 // C++ is the only way if there isn't C or Assembly available.
enable_code_snippets(); // We were allowed to do this
enable_code_snippets(); // And this
disable_code_snippets(); // The marketing team doesn't allow this as they want everyone to be handicapped when developing.

The C++ code snippet powertoy was developed as a one-time effort when we shipped VS2005. We are sorry to hear that it doesn't work in VS2008. We are currently focusing our efforts to ship this feature in an integrated way for our next release. In the meantime, we will not be changing the behavior of VS2008.
