Visual Studio 2010 CTP


Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0 Community Technology Preview (CTP) is available to download after PDC 2008. Microsoft is currently providing Virtual Machine(VM) hard disk to be run on Microsoft Virtual PC SP1. The first look of VS 2010 shows you a new good looking start page built on WPF, which can be customized as well 🙂


There are plenty of features coming in C# 4.0 which we will discuss in the coming posts. For now, If you are interested in getting first look of the upcoming technology you can download it from Visual Studio 2010 CTP Feedback Home. The download size is very large, around 7 GB, make sure you use some download utility for that. There are plenty of tips and suggestions are posted for downloading and using CTP but here I will recommend you to visit following links before using CTP:


Also there is also a video available on Channel 9 which will help you in working with the Visual Studio 2010 CTP.
