the programming class I am currently taking uses Visual C++ 2008, and to work from home, we have the option of getting the express edition. I can't find the download link anywhere on the website, and the Microsoft support was absolutely no help. I also looked into just using Visual C++ 2010 but I heard there isn't much of a chance for compatability to work. If anyone has information on where I can get the Visual Studio 2008 express ISO or the C++ 2008 express download seperately, then let me know.
Using a currently supported version would be a better approach. However, it is stillpossible to download and install 2008 in such a way that no registration is needed.The offline installer for the Visual Studio 2008 Express products will allow installationfrom a CD/DVD burnt from an ISO image file. So no Internet connection is needed for theinstall. Being intended for use on PCs that don't have an Internet connection, no subsequentregistration is needed.See:Visual Studio 2008 Express ISO image download -studio-2008-express-iso-image-download.aspxNote that the link in that blog post has been modified so it will now take you to the 2015pages. To download the 2008 Express version, try this link from download.microsoft.com: -4990-40D0-A6AA-CE894CBBB3DC/VS2008ExpressENUX1397868.isoYou can choose to install just VB from the disk without installing the other products,- Wayne

Visual Basic 2008 is the version of Visual Basic launched by Microsoft in 2008. Visual Basic 2008 is almost similar to Visual Basic 2005 but it has added many new features. Visual Basic 2008 is a full fledged Object-Oriented Programming(OOP) Language. However, you don't have to know OOP to learn VB2008. In fact, if you are familiar with Visual Basic 6, you can learn VB2008 effortlessly because the syntaxes and interface are similar. Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition is available free for download from the Microsoft site. (OOP will be explained in lesson 4).
ASP.NET AJAX now ships in Visual Web Developer Express 2008 so you can easily do partial-page updates (updates that dynamically retrieve data from the server without reloading the whole page) by simply adding an UpdatePanel control. Best of all, you can reuse all of the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit (separate download) to enable some RAD AJAX features including animation, drop shadows, rounded corners, and more.

The last couple of days have been better than Christmas for a few of us.Microsoft has been releasing many updates to its developer tools and sdk to gowith the recent release of Visual Studio 2008. Below I have listed the updatesthat have been released with download links. Enjoy!

One of the jobs of CSS is to help customers with issues they encounter and our team is ready to help you when you contact us on SQL Server 2008. In that spirit, I want to make sure you know about a possible issue you might encounter today if you download SQL Sever 2008 and attempt to install it on a machine with Visual Studio 2008 already installed. If you have previously installed a CTP build of SQL Server 2008 you may also be affected by this problem so please read this carefully.
3) The binaries we need from VS 2008 SP1 are not related to the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 update. SQL Server 2008 does require the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 update but for different reasons. SQL Server 2008 setup will install the released version of .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 if it detects it is not already installed. This is one of the first things SQL Server 2008 setup does when executed. Even if you have the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 Beta, SQL Server 2008 will update it to the RTM version of .Net Framework 3.5 SP1. The .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 is available for separate download by customers here (in fact VS 2008 SP1 will as part of its installation process install the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1). SQL Server 2008 has the exact same version of the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 installation as is on the download center so you will not need to apply any updates for it.
One important detail about the .net framework dependency. Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) has the dependency for updates at the .net 3.5 sp1 level. All other SQL Server components depend on .net 2.0 sp2. But .net 2.0 sp2 is not available as a general download and rather than waiting to see if you pick BIDS as a feature, we decided to make the .net 3.5 sp1 framework update a pre-installation step. The one exception to this rule is on Itanium (IA64) platforms running Windows Server 2003. This is because .net 3.5 is not supported on IA64 platforms on operating system versions less than Windows Server 2008. So...since we still need .net 2.0 sp2 on these platforms and you cannot run BIDS on IA64, we include on the media source for SQL Server 2008 a specific package to install .net 2.0 sp2 on IA64 for Windows Server 2003.
4) Visual Studio Express SKUs cannot be updated with Visual Studio 2008 SP1. You must run the Express full installation which has been updated to the SP1 level. So if you have for example Visual C# 2008 Express, you must go to to install the updated full download. You do not have to uninstall your RTM Express SKU. You must follow this procedure for any Express SKU you have installed.
If you would like to use Visual C++ 2008 on your own computer, you candownloadVisual C++ 2008 Express Edition for free from Microsoftand install it. A few students in the past have had troubles with installingsoftware if they had not turned off their firewall and antivirus software forthe duration of the installation. During the installation, you'll be asked ifyou want to install two optional components: Microsoft MSDN Express Libraryfor Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition x86. ForCS 31, 32, and 33, you do not need to install these. The installationappears to make no progress for about ten minutes while installing the .NET3.5 Framework, but rest assured, it's doing something. 2b1af7f3a8
