Binaries for Visual Studio Express developers (without NuGet)

It would be very nice if separate binaries of latest version will be also available for download for Visual Studio Express developers who can not use NuGet.

Have you discovered this yet?: http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/news/vs2013-community-vs.aspx It's basically VS Pro for free.

Very good, I did not know about it. Question is if it is not somewhat time-limited (it will not work after half a year for example).
But for now, I am limited to Visual Basic 2010 Express which does not support NuGet or other add-ins so I need binaries (I will not undergo this library source code compiling).

Hi,

I would also recommend using the VS13 community edition. It is essentially Visual Studio Pro 13 and is free. The Express editions are not supported anymore.

I can possibly give you the DLLs but I do not compile on Visual Studio 2010 anymore and I don't test VS10 anymore either. That would be without any guarantee that it will work. If that's OK with you, fine.

Cheers

Thank you for reply. There are some fundamental limitations why I can not use VSC2013 yet, maybe in near future. For now, I found a way to get what I need: Install NuGet package into empty project in Visual Web Developer 2010 Express (which supports NuGet) and copy these latest binaries into my Visual Basic 2010 Express project.

That sounds like a good workaround. Thanks!
