    Availability of Visual Studio 2010 & .NET Framework 4 Announced

    Today Microsoft is announcing the availability of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.


    S. Somasegar, Senior Vice President of the Developer Division here at Microsoft, has posted about the release of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 and the 5 major launch events happening around the world.

    Visual Studio 2010 provides a great deal of enhancements for developers to make it easier to develop applications including a new editor which now uses the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and multiple monitor support. Visual Studio 2010 represents a major investment by Microsoft to provide developers with the best tools for developing applications targeting the latest Microsoft releases such as Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Phone 7, and Windows Azure.

    For developers who are developing applications for Windows 7, Visual Studio 2010 has built-in support for Windows 7’s multitouch features (Windows Touch) and the “Ribbon” UI. That means developers can easily build applications specifically for Windows 7 that use multitouch and use the Ribbon. Visual Studio also makes it easy for developers to take advantage of Windows 7 features such as Jump Lists and Sensor and Location in their applications by providing quick access to libraries and code samples on MSDN.

    To download, purchase or get more information on Visual Studio 2010, visit the Visual Studio website.

    I want to remind developers to check out Develop for Windows. Develop for Windows is a new website we launched last month designed to highlight resources for Windows developers. Developers who visit the site can get sample code and special “kits” to jump-start developing a Windows application, and of course pointers to lots and lots of Windows developer content at the Windows Developer Center on MSDN. If you go to the site today and click “Build”, there is a special section dedicated to Visual Studio 2010! Oh and of course you can browse the Windows 7 for Developers Blog for some great content and Channel 9 too!

    Windows 8 32 bit

    If you want to do something really useful then please work on getting net framework 3.5 to work on windows 8, I have programs that require this and wont work on fwork 4, and I aint the only one

    we have tried installing it from Microsoft and windows update .. no good because it sais a more recent version is already in place ( including the standalone version )

    we have tried enabling it with the windows feature it tries to download and same as above

    The programmes are 2012 version of a driving theory test
    it might even be why windows media player does not work

    scanned hard drive with ccleaner no errors
    scanned with defender no errors
    done maintenance scan no errors
    done chkdsk ( exclusive access one ) no errors
    defraged - on daily schedule

    so as you can see it is not my computer that is the problem
