Yesterday I received a visual studio 2010 Ultimate edition from work.
I’ve already test the express edition when it was in beta phase, but itâ€™s not the same â€¦
So, letâ€™s install it !
I install it on a Fujitsu Siemens laptop with 4 GB Ram and a Intel Core 2 Duo processor (2,53 GHz) running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate edition.
Launch the auto run program
Read and accept the license terms
Choose your installation mode : Full installation (takes more than 6 GB) or Custom installation
I choose Custom
Select the features you want :
(notice that â€œMicrosoft SharePoint Developer Toolsâ€ are integrated)
I just donâ€™t want Dotfuscator community to be installed, so I uncheck it
I keep the rest because I want to test some features
Installation running :
After less than 10 minutes, the installation asked me to restart my computer:
I click â€œRestart Nowâ€
When restarting, a loading form is showing
Then the setup continue
After about 45 minutes, the setup is finished
You can choose to install the documentation, but I choose to click on the â€œFinishâ€ button.
The installation windows appears :
I Click Exit
Visual Studio 2010 is now installed
The installation takes me about one hour, and no problem occurred.
Now I can launch the product
I choose my default environment settings (I used to choose Visual C# Development settings so I pick this one).
I Click on â€œStart Visual Studioâ€
First time loading form
Visual studio is up and running
Help and documentation are on the start page:
A Whatâ€™s new section is available on the start page :
Some other links are available :
- Creating application with Visual Studio
- Extending Visual Studio
- Community and Learning Resources
Some resources for Windows, Web, Cloud, Office,SharePoint and Data development are accessible too.
Next step : migration of a Visual studio 2008 solution !
