Please help me get an installation of VB2008 Express & VC++2008 Expess registered RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have downloaded and installed VB 2008 Express & VC++ 2008 Express however these products request registration before 30 days of use, and the menu item in the running programs links to a page that advertises other products, and is therefore unhelpful.

    Surely there is a way to register these programs so they do not lock up after 30 days is up.

    Best regards Susan Bruce.

  • Hi Susan,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Since the support for Visual Basic Express 2008 and Visual C++ 2008 Express already ended. For a support for your development about visual studio in the future, you could consider a newer version. Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition is free, and which contains more features than your version, you could download it from https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/.

    BTW, if you need the 2008 version, you could download the Visual Studio 2008 All in One ISO installer. This ISO installer does not require you to obtain a registration key for you to use the product after 30 days.

    Just VS 2008 Express

  • Thanks Joyce, the old software can have advantages for people like me perhaps, I am not a fan of the throw away culture.
