I am not having generate sequence diagram option when I right click in visual studio 2010 to create sequence diagram from C# code.

I believe you need VS 2010 Ultimate to have this option.

Unfortunately Doug is right.

Damn it!!!

“Professional” developers need tools like this, so how can VS2010 “Professional” not have it, at least as an unsupported configurable add-in?

We have truly arrived at an era in which features and services that used to be standard are now limited to premium or elite versions. And it’s everywhere now: just think of how airlines charge extra now for your baggage, and how Adobe seems hell bent on keeping its Flash Player limited to higher end mobile devices.
