Icon 3 Comments
I'm sure most of you .NET developers are using VS 2010, but did you know there's a service pack out there?

Yes, it compiles all sorts of goodies for you and fixes a lot of bugs. All you need to do is double click the installer and click next, next, next.



This download installs Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This service pack release addresses issues that were found through a combination of customer and partner feedback, as well as internal testing. These service packs offer Visual Studio users improvements in responsiveness and stability, as well as completes some high-impact scenarios requested by customers. The full list of updates included in this service pack can be found here.


Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) will upgrade all editions and languages of Visual Studio 2010 you have already installed. If you install any other editions or languages of Visual Studio 2010 after SP1, you must reapply SP1.

If you installed Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 Beta, you should not uninstall it before installing this release of SP1.

Prior to installation, you should carefully review the readme to be aware of any known issues with this release.

The install may take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes based on your hardware, Visual Studio SKUs installed, download speed and other factors. In some cases it will take longer than 90 minutes - it is recommended that you close other applications to prevent rollback/retry cycles, which can add significant time.

Here's the download link to the online installer:

And for those of you who don't like online installers, here's a big chunky .ISO file you can download and save for other installations. :)

Happy downloading!

If you were using the Async CTP, that will be broken by the service pack update. I understand there is an SP1 compatible CTP out for it now.
