Premier Partner Edition Setup and User Guide 

The Visual Studio Premier Partner Edition (PPE) provides VSIP partners with a redistributable version of the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) from which the programming languages and the features that support their respective project systems have been removed.

This IDE-only version of Visual Studio serves as a development platform to which VSIP partners can add their development tools and computer languages. The result is a platform that supports language implementations, such as COBOL and Perl, and other development tools that complement the Visual Studio environment.
