Re: vb express 2008 registration

Well, it says I must have a Windows Live ID. So I went on and tried to get one but to do that, I had to enter the text shown in a graphic. I got the audio version but there's no way I could understand what it said. Just have to wait till later when someone can read it to me, then start over.

Hi Howard: I am not sure about needing a live key but if you need one it is free. The process to register the product otherwise is to go to that webpage as you did. Then fill in all the fields in the form and click the continue or whatever the next button is. You will be sent to another page where you can cursor to the Product Key you need, copy it to the clipboard, close the browser and paste it into the TextBox in the Register Dialog where you started. Then click the Register button and you should be done. If you need the Live Key thingy you will have to read up on getting one since I have had mine for 5 or more years and forget how I got it. But, it was free and not a problem to get from what I remember.

Subject: vb express 2008 registration


Here I am again; this time trying to register my vb 2008. Going to Register in the Help menu, gives me a dialog that took me to a microsoft page that wanted me to use my windows live logon to get a registration number for 2010. I don't have any windows live login and I don't see how to get a key for 2008. Being the procrastinator I am, I now have only 21 days left. How frustrating!
Help, please?
Howard

So it sounds like they are adding Silverlight to the download now days. OK, Registration of the product is free and after you register it you can use it as long as you want. I will see if I saved a step by step on how to register it. The general process use to be to click the Register item under the help menu from inside the IDE. Then mous click on the words "Register Now" or similar verbage in the dialog box that comes up. Then you are taken to a Microsoft Website where you fill out a general question form about your interests, click continue or next and read your Registration Code on the next page. You copy it to the clipboard, close your browser to return to the Registration Dialog Box, paste the code into it and then eeither just hit enter or tab to a button that says something like continue, finish or something. You have 30 days to register it and I will see if I have a step by step around with better instructions since I have not done it in a year or so. I think the hardest part of getting started is downloading, installing and configuring that puppy. Get that done and life gets a little easier going forward.

Thanks Rick, I got your book and installed vbsetup.exe which turns out to be (it seems) visual basic.net. the first time, i left silver light checked but unchecked sql. It crashed in the middle. second time I unchecked both silver light and sql. then it installed ok. Now it wants me to register in 30 days. I don't think I'll learn enough about it in 30 days to know if I want to buy it. I'll continue following your book--probably with questions, if it's OK?

Hi Howard: Indeed. Each of the setup exe modules is the installer for that language. the vbsetup.exe is for the Vb.net and the others are for their respective languages. I too used Liberty Basic for a few years and it is a very nice language and the e-list folks were very good to work with and helpful. As I mentioned, I recommend you take a week or 2 and walk through my booklet on how to use VB.net with a screen reader. It covers downloading, installing and configuring it for use with a screen reader like WindowEyes. It also demonstrates how to build a project, add forms to a project, the use of OOP in the form of Classes, Properties and Methods as well as various hot keys and shortcuts that make accessibility easier.http://EmpowermentZone.com/VB2008WinEyes.zip If you take the time to walk, slogg at times, through this book you will be ready to handle the basics of working in VB.net within the IDE. After that you should be able to extend your learning using the basic accessibility tools in the booklet applied to new learning situations. The Booklet is for folks exactly like you who have an understanding of programming but want to get into using the Visual Studio IDE for it's massive power and Design-Time tools.
