Visual Studio 2005 Express editions

I found myself in need for J# of all things for something with work.  J# is the MS answer to migrating Java code to .net.

Anyways it turns out I was able to find the web installer, but the link for generating a license code no longer exists.  However, the ISO’s never needed the code.  Except they aren’t available for download.

Or so I thought.

Turns out they are still there, but MS pulled the pages.

I figure it’ll help someone out there.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



    • I put a great number of this stuff here

      Although I don’t know if things like .net 1.0 sp1/2 are even worth trying to track down…
