    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    You can upgarde to 2010 Express for free. But you need to register for 2010 Express edition again(Also, you can use the same email as Visual Stdio 2008).

  • As far as i know, there is no upgrade from Express Edition 2008 to Express Edition 2010. You simply download VC++ 2010 Express and register it within 30 days with new registration key.

    By "upgrade" in this case do you mean downloading and installing VC++ 2010 Express? Because i don't know about any link to upgrade installed VC++ 2008 Express to VC++2010 Express.

  • Hi Sergey Chepurin,

    Yes. I mean he can download a new copy of VC++ Express 2010 and install it. In this case, I think OP want to konw if he can use VS2010 Express for free.

    "i don't know about any link to upgrade installed VC++ 2008 Express to VC++2010 Express."

    For this, I agree with you.
