If you're in EMEA and have been looking for a way to get your hands on trial versions of Visual Studio 2005, there's now a site where you can download or order a DVD/CD: http://www.microsoft.com/emea/msdn/visualstudio/enxu/getthetrials/
Products available are:
Hi - I've downloaded this file but can't get it to install. I made the DVD from the image and I extracting the files from the img. Neither route led to a setup that actually worked. Has anybody else been successful?
Cheers - frustrated of Oxford!
This post is from nearly 4 years ago and VS2005 has now out of date, it may be best to try the 2010 beta trial. Head to http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-gb/default.mspx.
Maybe I should start deleting old posts....apologies for your frustration.
I'll try VS2010 but I was hoping to use the same environment as a partner who is using VS2005 for building a Windows CE application. The img file is still available for downloading but just doesn't work. Any ideas why?
My frustration is with Microsoft - their current advice is to use this trial version of VS to evaluate Windows Embedded but the route doesn't work.
Hmm no I can't think of any good reason why it wouldn't work. Who advised you to use VS2005 trial? I'll follow up with them for you if it's a Microsoft person.
I looked up windows embedded ce and got to here ... http://www.microsoft.com/windowsembedded/en-us/products/windowsce/getting-started.mspx
I downloaded all the files and the rest is the history above. The image file doesn't seem to contain a valid installer. I'm using XP Pro sp3 but don't think that's the problem.
Thanks for your help.
by the way - glad you didn't delete the old posts!
