Visual Studio 2005 Express editions

I found myself in need for J# of all things for something with work.  J# is the MS answer to migrating Java code to .net.

Anyways it turns out I was able to find the web installer, but the link for generating a license code no longer exists.  However, the ISO’s never needed the code.  Except they aren’t available for download.

Or so I thought.

Turns out they are still there, but MS pulled the pages.

I figure it’ll help someone out there.

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. The Express editions AFAIK don’t really need activation, they just need a key to be filled in the registry. Here’s the activation for C# Express 2008:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VCSExpress\9.0\Registration]

    “Params”=”1”

    • I put a great number of this stuff here

      Although I don’t know if things like .net 1.0 sp1/2 are even worth trying to track down…
