Visual Studio Express

Microsoft announced that their Visual Studio 2005 Express editions will be free to download for 1 year. Based on their post, these are fully functional software (although less features such MFC) with no expiration date. During this promotional period, anyone can download it and use it for as long as they want. I haven't tried it, but am curious to see what it offers.

  1. I used Visual C# 2005 Express Edition for my Yahoo! Music Engine plugins (this and this) and it worked great. The one thing that it was missing that I originally wanted to use was the feature that lets you create installer programs, but then I ended up using NSIS for that which wasn't too bad.
