SharePoint 2010 Pre-Requisites Download Links

Update: Windows PowerShell v2 RTM download link, KB971831 download link, KB976462 download link

If you don’t have internet connection on the machine you want to install SharePoint 2010, then you need to download pre-requisites manually.

Note: This article applies only to Beta 2 (Public Beta) currently, I will update this when it’s RTM. If you are using Technical Preview, then this does not apply to you.

The download links will be provided when you click Learn more about these prerequisites in the pre-req installer tool. However, this link is not activated yet. So I will list the links below.
