Visual Studio 11 Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • Will this be available to download by itself at some point? Is it possible to add the new Metro functions into VS2010Pro and/or VWD2010express?

  • I would expect it to be available at some point. It is not possible to create Metro style apps to Visual Studio 2010.

    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.
