Wednesday, September 14, 2011 3:35 AMHello, I noticed the ISO downloads include developmental tools included in the 64 bit preview, but not the 32 bit. Is there any way to get the developer tools for 32 bit? I really wanna start developing, but i don't wanna risk installing on my 64 bit comp. Thanks in advanced. EDIT: After reading a little, I think I am just going to install it on my 64 bit comp in a Virtual Environment. BUT, im sure some others would still like to know the answer to my original question.

Currently, the developer tools are available only with the image named "Windows Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit (x64)". We just posted a more detailed answer to the same question in the Tools forum (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/toolsforwinapps/thread/f2bc3b94-caab-4973-8bbd-c8123b811d0a).
Have fun using the tools!

Here's some upated information regarding Visual Studio availability:
Starting on Friday, all users can download the Visual Studio 11 Preview. This will run on Windows 7 (32-bit X86 and 64-bit X64) and on the Windows Developer Preview (32-bit X86 and 64-bit X64). For more details please see
Today in the BUILD keynote I had the opportunity to show some of the new functionality in Microsoft® Visual Studio® 11 Developer Preview and Microsoft® Team Foundation Server Preview. MSDN subscribers can download the previews today as well as the new release of .NET Framework 4.5 Developer Preview; general availability is on Friday, September 16.
