Step by Step : Installing Visual Studio 2010

Finally I am able to download the Visual studio 2010 and prepared my system to install visual studio.  I downloaded VS2010Beta1ENU_PRO_2PartsTotal.part1.exe and VS2010Beta1ENU_PRO_2PartsTotal.part2.rar files from here.
I took the back up of my VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) which is a Windows XP with Office 2007, Visual Studio 2008 professional, SQL Server 2005 Express edition, Silver light 2.0 SDK and Microsoft Expression 2.0.
Let’s see how my installation went on.
I started my installation by double clicking VS2010Beta1ENU_PRO_2PartsTotal.part1.exe. This is the first screen you will see.

Once u click install it will extract the ISO image in the specified directory.

Once the ISO image is created, I mounded the Disk.  This ISO image autorun will launch the installation. This the first screen of the installation.

Click on the install Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. This will extract the setup in the files and next u will see the following screen.

Click Next.

Accept the license terms and click next.

Select any of the check box, this will enable Customize button at the bottom left corner. Select the customize button to select what components you want to install. If you select both the check boxes all the components will be selected automatically.

If you want you can specify the path where this should be installed, but I am leaving as it is. And click install…

Be patient … this will take looooooong time…because this will install a looooooong list of items…
After installing Microsoft .Net framework ….it will ask for a restart….Don’t get panic please go ahead and allow it restart the system. After restarting the system, installation will start automatically. Once all the components were installed, you will get finish page.

That’s it. Click finish button. You are ready to explore the mush waited and fully loaded visual Studio 2010.
Happy Coding
