Can't buy Blend 3, Can't upgrade 'cause I use VS 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work at  software company using VS 2008 to develop. I'm the designer, and have been evaluating Expression Blend 3, which works with VS 2008. I considered trying EB 4 when it came out, but apparently it only works with VS 2010, so for the moment I've got to stick with EB 3. 

    When I try to buy Expression Blend, I get pushed to version 4 pages. Microsoft telephone support told me to look for EB 3 at retails stores. So far I've been unable to locate it at any.

    With my trial period running out, I'm getting a little nervous. My question is: How the ____ do I buy Expression Blend 3?!!

  • I can't speak for the official MS store, but Expression Studio 3 is available at many online retailers, that is probably your easiest path to acquire it.  I don't believe you can get just Blend 3, you have to get it as part of Expression Studio 3.


    Studio 4 is a free upgrade from 3, so if you buy 3 at retail you should able to get the V4 products as well.
