I don’t know about VS2008, but VS 2017 tools install just fine:

What are you wanting to do with VS 2008 in a container?

VS2008 is the last edition to support ‘smart devices’: Build applications for Windows CE 6 and Windows Embedded Compact 7
It would be great to be able to build these platforms from docker as well.
