Visual Studio 2010 Beta and 2008 Trial VMs

Virtual machine images for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 are now available for download. Using a virtual machine image allows you to try out software without having a dedicated machine for testing. The machine image is available in a variety of formats. On the download page you’ll see that the image for each format has been broken into multiple chunks. You need to get all of the parts for one of the formats depending on the type of virtual machine you’re using.

The machine images for the Visual Studio 2008 trial have also been updated. If you’ve gotten the trial image in the past, it’s set to expire shortly. These new images will run until January 2011.

Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Beta period extended

A lot of you have given us very positive feedback on the new capabilities of VS 2010 and .NET Framework 4 and are very happy with the breadth of value that we are poised to deliver in this release.
