As we know, for the offline install of Visual Studio 2008 Express products (ISO installer), it doesn't require a registration key.
However, it seems that the registration behavior of offline installer would be a bit different from VS2008 and VS2010. We also need to register the product via the Internet. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thus, you need to register Visual Studio 2010 Express product online.
I can understand your favor on the registration behavior of offline installer for VS2008 Express. If it doesn't disturb you a lot, you can try providing more information on your concern like why you need this feature and feedback it on our Connect
portal site as a formal way:
Every feedback submitted will be evaluated carefully by our engineers. If this suggestion is reasonable and other customers have the similar concern on this feature, they will let us know their comments further through that portal. This would be helpful to
improve Visual Studio products.
Thank you for your help.
Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.
