    Q: How do I register?
    Choose the Product Registration menu option from the help menu inside Express Edition application you want to register.
    You do not need to register if installed from the CD images.
    You do not need to register SQL Server 2005 Express Edition but you can if you want.

  • Well, Alexander. Thanks so much for another brilliant and useless non-answer from Microsoft.

    This poster asked you how to get a registration key for Visual c++ 2008 express edition, and you answered by saying to use the help menu option. Forums are filled with this question to Microsoft, and every one of them goes un-answered.  You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

    Visual c++ 2008 express edition is available for download from the MS download center. Ergo, many if us do indeed download it. Isn't that amazing!?

    The program requires that we obtain a free registration key, which we all dutifully try to do; via the popup that prevents our using the program without it. The link requires a Windows Live login, and respond with an error message that it is not a Live ID site!!!! So, no one can use the program because we cannot get past the registartion key required popup. How in the world do you figure we can register using the help menu if the program will not start in the first place?

    Will you please tell us how to get the registration key? Thanks, (I think... We'll see...) ~R

  • Hi rRicard, if you are not able to obtain a registration key for any VS 2008 Express standalone edition (VB, C#, C++, Web Developer), then please download the All In One offline ISO installer here. It does not require any registration.

  • Hi RRicard,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    If we want to get a registration key, we can go to Help menu>>Register Product. If people want to register Visual Studio 2008 Express without registration key, please try Systemx’s suggestion that download and install Offline version of Visual Studio 2008.

    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
