Note This trial product is posted as an ISO-9660 image file. An ISO-9660 image file is an exact representation of a CD or DVD, including the content and the logical format. The most common uses of an ISO file are:

  • Write it to a blank CD-R or DVD-R (resulting in an identical copy of the original disk including file name and volume label information)
  • Copy the ISO to a local folder, much like a ZIP file.
  • Virtually mount the ISO and access it as a device, using a 3rd party application.

These three methods may necessitate the need to validate the replicated image. There are a number of 3rd party tools that use SHA1 Hash or CRC values to validate that the downloaded file matches the source file.

Upgrading from Trial Editions

When you are ready to upgrade from an installed trial edition of Visual Studio or Team Foundation Server (or the Workgroup Edition of Team Foundation Server), you don't have to completely uninstall and reinstall those products. For more information, see How to: Upgrade from Visual Studio Trial Edition (a Visual Studio 2005 topic, but still accurate).
