Visual Studio 2010: RTM paid installs over Trial

If you have not checked yet, there are trial versions for Visual Studio 2010 for those who do not have an MSDN disk. If you go this route, you can easily upgrade once you have your Visual Studio install disk from MSDN. Here are the steps:

  1. Insert Disk
  2. Start installer
  3. Select Change or Remove Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
  4. Click next after the setup loads
  5. On the maintenance page click the Activate button that appears on the lower left side
  6. It should check the disk and send in the activation. That is it

This is the easiest way after downloading the MSDN ISO image or using the MSDN DVD (if you are working with an actual disk). You can also enter the key, if you desire, by going to Help >> Register Product and entering the key for Visual Studio. As the maintenance mode is extremely easy, I opted away from this route. 🙂
