Before you Install
Instructions for Downloading and Installing Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition
You will need a PC running Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 or XP Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1, Windows 64 or Windows Vista. As this is a big download, ensure that you are up-to-date with your Windows Updates first.

You will also be required to register with Microsoft. If you have a Hotmail or Windows Live account already then use that. If not then you will need to sign up (it is free) for one.

You'll need a reasonably fast Internet connection to the PC where you are going to install Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. Dial-up will not cut the mustard for 330Mb downloads!
