View Thread: Visual Studio Express - End of Life
  • User profile image

    Microsoft is killing the following editions of VS Express:    
      - Visual C#
      - Visual Basic  
      - Visual C++  

    They will still be available but won't be updated beyond the current version 10. 

    They will instead only be offering the following three products: 
      - Express for Windows Phone
      - Express for WIndows 8 (Metro only: supports C#, VB, C++, and Javascript)      
      - Express for Web    

    At this point it isn't clear from Microsoft's blog post if you'll be able to produce "forms" or console applications in the "Windows 8" edition (but I suspect not).
