The Web Service Software Factory 2010 is an integrated collection of resources designed to help you quickly and consistently build Web services that adhere to well-known architecture and design patterns.
The installer may only display Ultimate, but the installation should not fail on Professional. If it does, please let us know on the community site at http://servicefactory.codeplex.com so we can figure it out.
The fact the installer only displays Ultimate is a bug in how the extension is installed. This isn't a bug with WSSF or the description. The installation should succeed on Professional and Premium. If it doesn't, something else is wrong.
I have installed the GAX but still I am getting this error:
Install Error : Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.MissingReferencesException: This extension cannot be installed because the following references are missing:
- Guidance Automation Extensions
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.ExtensionManagerService.BeginInstall(IInstallableExtension installableExtension, Boolean perMachine, AsyncOperation asyncOp)
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.ExtensionManagerService.InstallWorker(IInstallableExtension extension, Boolean perMachine, AsyncOperation asyncOp)
Is there an order in which we should install the prerequisites?
Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with Visual Studio 2010 SDK & GAX installed.

@CJWarnke, I'm very sorry for the confusion during your installation. I should have posted this as a known issue in the description.
**** Even though you see "Ultimate" during the installation, and you're not using the Ultimate edition, continue with the installation. It should install successfully in Professional, Premium and Ultimate editions of Visual Studio 2010. ****
Fortunately, this bug doesn't prevent a successful installation. Our understanding is this is a bug with VSIX (not with this particular extension) and not anything we were able to influence. I'd be interested in your experience with installing other VSIX extensions. Please try the installation again (after the system requirements are met of course) and let me know if you have any problems.
Thanks, and sorry again for the inconvenience.
I have the same issue as CJWarnke, it does not install. After reading the log, I found it was because the Visual Studio 2010 SDK was not installed. Then after install the SDK, the installation of Web Service Software Factory 2010 is successful.
I have Visual Studio 2010 Professional.
