Visual Studio 2008 registration


  • Hello,

    I've downloaded Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition from Microsoft website for my son. It has been installed in a folder with name Microsoft Visual Studio 9. We used Visual Basic for a while and now we get a window requesting to register it.

    On the registration window it appears "Visual Studio 2008" banner and a link to register. The link takes to

    but can't find a way to register.

    I've tried Visual Studio Community 2015 but it doesn't contain Visual Basic.  

    I've searched in the forum how to register Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Basic 2008 but I have found no solution.

    Could you please advise how to register it ? 

    Thanks a lot,
