There is no key needed for the Express edition, it's free

It does require registration though. If I remember correctly you have to create a live or hotmail account so you have a .NET passport then when the registration message pops up when you launch Visual C# Express there should be a link there to register. They will email you a registration key almost immediately just copy and paste it and have fun coding

Weird, I just downloaded it and installed it and it didn't ask (or tell me) anything about needing registration?

You might also want to try looking at the MSDNAA website -- they offer some great software for free for certain students.

Although I believe it currently only has Visual Studio 2005.

You can use Visual Studio 2008 Express products for 30 days, after which you will have to register them to continue their usage. Official FAQ (question #5)

MSDNAA is only available to students that attend colleges/schools that are members of the program, so this doesn't apply to everyone. Also, MSDNAA is offering Visual Studio 2008 as well.

To register- Help>Register Product in Visual C# 2008. Then you have to click 'Request Activation Code' or something like that. Do not use Google Chrome as the browser or it won't work. I recommend copying the URL of the newly opened window to Internet Explorer if it isn't your default- Microsoft does not seem to like any other browser.

Thanks for that tip, I've not actually used the Express editions before (I downloaded it to try and help the OP). Now I can stick this in my knowledge base for future use :)
