Installing VE3D without the setup package
In some scenarios it may be desirable to install the VE3D engine without visiting the www.bing.com/maps site, and/or to avoid the individual downloads that the setup package performs (eg offline or enterprise installations).
The main installation msi files are available at:

If installed this way, the pre-requisites must already be installed: the .NET 2.0 Framework and Windows Imaging Components. Vista and Windows 7 already have both of these by default, for XP the latest versions are available by searching for them on the Microsoft Download Center.
For convenience, here are some links to the prerequisites:
