New Visual Studio Team System 2008 Virtual Machines Posted


 

Now you can get VMs for either Virtual PC 2007 and Virtual Server 2005 R2 or for Hyper-V.  All the images have been updated and there are four (4) to choose from and they don’t expire until December 31st, 2009!

The images contain:

  • the latest virtual machine additions or integration services components
  • all of the latest Windows Updates as of December 1, 2008
  • Team Foundation Server 2008 SP1
  • Visual Studio 2008 Team Suite SP1
  • Team System Web Access 2008 SP1
  • Team Foundation Power Tools, October 2008 update
  • the latest MSSCCI provider
  • Team Explorer 2005 (this allows you to work with TFS from Visual Studio 2005 which is installed so that you can edit and customize TFS reports)
  • the GDR for the product formally known as Visual Studio 2008 Database Edition (aka Data Dude)
  • current Process Explorer, Process Monitor, and Background Info

    You can get the downloads here:

    Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1 and Team Suite SP1 Hyper-V Image (Trial)

    Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1 and Team Suite SP1 VPC Image (Trial)

    Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1 Hyper-V Image (Trial)

    Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server SP1 VPC Image (Trial)

    NOTE: 

    The Hyper-V downloads only contain the VHD. 

    These virtual machines do not have anti-virus installed, therefore it should not be connected to any network until it has anti-virus installed.

    Given the size and quantity of these downloads you may want to use a download manager such as Free Download Manager.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.  I also like to say a big “Thank You” to Brian Randell who maintains these images and was able to release them before Christmas.
