  • Hi eCatPCSecure,

    Thanks for your post.

    It's very difficult to provide you with any suggestion with this limited info. Would you please provide more information about your issue?

    There are several things I would like to clarify with you:

    • In your application, do you want to start VS in your project?
    • When mention "SKUs", do you want the list of all components installed by Visual Studio?
    • Which version of VS Express do you want to use, C#, VB or VC++?
    • I'm not quite understand your post "i want to know if the SKUs Change form install to install", would you please provide more information about your question ?

    About the list of Visual Studio Express components, it is reall depends on which product you installs.
    Generally speaking, VS Express will install:

    • .NET Framework 4.0
    • Some language specific components
    • SQL Server 2008 Express Service Pack 1

    For more information about the Visual Studio 2010 Express, please see: http://www.microsoft.com/express/

    If you have any concerns, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards,
