I am getting ready to start a programming tutorial series on C++ and Visual Basic. For these tutorials you will need to download and install Visual Studio 2010 Express. A link to the download is available on the downloads page. I recommend downloading the .iso image file and burning that to a disc. This is just my personal preferance and I prefer it because you do not have to download multiple file and if you would have a friend that would want to try the software you can let them use the disc and they will not have to wait while the .iso downloads.
A detailed video on how to install the software is below.
