  • Hey I noticed a rare thing in that ISO. It contains the MSDN Express Library in each folder if you mount or burn the ISO, however there seems to be only 1 copy of the exe in the ISO image file. How does MS create such Single instance storage ISOs? Amazing I want to know please. Can you ask the VS Express guys?

  • You can also get a free version of VS 2008 Standard Edition by attending the Heroes Happen Here launch events.
