MSSharePointDeveloper downloads updated

The introduction to SharePoint Development site has been up for four months now and we just posted an update to three of the downloads.

  • Downloadable WSS Dev VPC Image - This has been updated to Visual Studio 2008 (previously Visual Studio 2005). It's also a smaller download at about 1.8Gb to download in 4 files now. The Virtual PC image includes:
    • Windows Server 2003 (expires on 29th September 2009)
    • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1
    • Visual Studio 2008
    • Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services
    • 10 Hands on Labs for learning SharePoint in C# and VB.NET
  • SharePoint Developer Introductory Hands on Labs - These are all updated to Visual Studio 2008 and they are included on the VM image. They are also available for separate download from the site
  • SharePoint Developer Introductory Web Cast PPTs and Demos - Previously two of these 10 webcast PPTs were missing transcripts, this has been corrected.

All three of these downloads, and the online MSDN Virtual Labs, are available at
