MSDN Library for free download!

July 30, 2006

I’m surprised it hasn’t been available sooner as its always been available online, nevertheless Microsoft have released their MSDN Libary for free public download (no subscription to MSDN required). From the webiste:

MSDN Library provides access to essential programming information, including technical white papers, software development kits and code samples necessary to develop web services and applications. This is an updated version of the MSDN Library for Visual Studio® 2005.

The downloads are available as CD-ROM image files so will need to be burnt to CD or mounted.

Interestingly Microsoft have an unsupport iso mounting application available, although I havn’t tried it.

I’ve been using the web based version a huge amount recently for the project I’m working on and can see the advantage of having a local copy. For general reference the online version with google search is proberly the best bet!
