Visual Basic Express 2008 key?

    Question

  • Does Visual Basic Express 2008 require a registration key and if it does where do I find it after I've registered?

  • Hi RoninX8,


    Based on my understanding, you are trying to Web install Visual Basic Express 2008. As far as I know, a Windows Live ID is required for Visual Basic Express 2008 registration and activation. Creating a Windows Live ID account is easy and free. Please visit Windows Live for additional information.


    If one Live ID fails to get the registration key, just create a new Windows Live ID, and try the steps again to get the registration key.


    As an alternative, we can download we can download the VS 2008 Express edition All-in-One DVD Image (ISO) file from the LINK below, it is in the bottom of the page.

    http://www.microsoft.com/express/download/default.aspx


    After we download the ISO file, we can install it instantly without registration key, and we can use the VS 2008 express without registration.


    Regards,

  • Thanks for replying Caddre! Unfortunately, I've already been through the links you posted and tried contacting support directly before posting here.  When I attempted to email support directly my message was returned undeliverable for some reason.  Looking through the program there isn't any menu link for inputting a Key so It may be a safe assumption to make that Microsoft did away with the key for the 2008 edition of the Visual Studio Express products.  Considering the products are made available free to use this would save some hassle for the user and kind of seems like a sensible thing to do from a users standpoint.

  • I have tried many times to register my visual basic program, but it is not working. I keep typing in my account ,griff44444@live.com and it just says that the page is loading, but it really isn't. There's a green circle that keeps repeating it, but my web page says that the page is done loading. Is there something wrong with the page? Because I can't seem to get it to work?

    And sorry about the various fonts :]

  • This is for RoninX8 and everyone in the world that is having trouble registering there VB product.
    I too have sat and watched the little green circle for hours and made numerous email attempts and phone calls to Microsoft to try and register my VB program.

    So discouraged over the whole thing I was ready to accept the fact that I would never learn VB.

    But do not fear, Gary Found the cure.

    First of, you bad little programmer, you didn’t do your updates from Microsoft. Well, maybe you don’t have to but I would if I were you. Every time you install a program, Microsoft looks for updates to HELP YOU with your product. I know, they just seem to get in the way when you’re in the middle of something very important like a game of FreeCell. “RIGHT”?

    OK, I hope this helps you so here it is. It’s so simple your going to pull your hair out of your head wondering why you didn’t think of it right off hand.

    Open your Internet browser and go to “Tools”. Select “Manage Add-ons. Make sure anything from Microsoft is ENABLED.

    I have included a list that I have and 3 of them were disabled and after enabling them again, everything worked just fine.

    You probably don’t need all the ones I have listed but make sure you run UPDATES before you try to register again. And even then after everything comes to life for you, run UPDATES again.

    I sure hope this helps all of you lost souls out there. If it does, drop me a line.

    If not, May the power of Microsoft have mercy on you.

    Gary

  • Hi ALL,

    For direct download links.>>

    See.>> http://www.microsoft.com/express/Downloads/#2008-All

    If you have trouble installing on Windows 7 try this.>>

    After you burn it to a c.d. instead of letting the c.d. AUTORUN try a right-click on the Setup or Install icon and select
    RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR on Windows 7.

    For direct download links for the ISO version which is complete with Service Pack 1 ( SP1 ).>>

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/8/E/E8EEB394-7F42-4963-A2D8-29559B738298/VS2008ExpressWithSP1 ENUX1504728.iso


    or try the link for the version without SP1.>>

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/B/5/8B5804AD-4990-40D0-A6AA-CE894CBBB3DC/VS2008Express ENUX1397868.iso


    The ISO version does not require online registration, apparently.
