Hi BobJEvans, if you are unable to register and still get redirected to the error page, then I suggest that you download the "All - Offline Install ISO image file" from
This "All In One" ISO image file contains VB, VC++, VC# and Web Developer 2008 Express editions. You are not required to obtain a registration key if you install any of these Express editions from this particular ISO, and you can use them even after the
30 day period. Hope this helps!
