Unable to register vb 2010 express


  • cannot register for vb 21010 express: web site accepts by password as requested then tells me the site is not valid. Registration was attempted from within vb 2010 "Help" option... but does NOT work. I've tried to go to Microsoft site directly, but the same thing happens. Please advise how to register, its supposed to be free, but I can't download the a code for it.

  • Hi IAFxl,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    For your issue, because Microsoft is no longer offering VS 2010 Express to the public, so the registration site is closed. So you got the 404 error.

    So I suggest you consider to use Visual Studio 2013 Express instead, you can download from here:

    Best Regards,
