New Product Family Name for Visual Studio coming soon

New Product Family Name for Visual Studio coming soon

Hello folks, 

Just some product family and product name housekeeping we want to keep you updated on.   Very soon, the "Visual Studio" product family will be renamed to "Developer Tools, Runtimes, and Redistributables".  The reason for the change is to more accurately reflect the various developer related products that will be serviced via Microsoft Update and WSUS.  

After this change, any previously released (and new) updates released for Visual Studio 2005, and Visual Studio 2008, will be available under those product categories, but now under the new product family name of Developer Tools, Runtimes, and Redistributables. 

Also under this new product family name, you will also see two new product categories.  Report Viewer 2005 and Report Viewer 2008.   These two new product categories will include updates for the Report Viewer 2005 and 2008 Redistributables.

Thank you!

The MU and WSUS team

  • Will this require the affected updates to be re-released?

  • @Harry Johnston,

    I don't think so. For example, I have SP1 for Visual Studio 2008 installed in my laptop, so I don't expect that Windows Update offers me to download and install it again.

    It's like changing the name of a shelf in a library, and moving books from the old shelf to the new one :)

    Best regards!

  • @Jorge,

    Re-released doesn't mean they will need to be re-installed.  In WSUS, new update packages are sometimes released for updates that have not themselves changed.

    I'd like an official response from MS please.  If all the VS updates are re-released to WSUS, this will break a considerable number of developer systems, due to a problem with the ATL update.  This has already happened at least once due to the ATL update being re-released.
