Creating a Development VM - Part 6
Installing Visual Studio 2010
Map the VM CD/DVD drive to the ISO file with the Visual Studio installation files
Launch the installer.
Accept the license agreement and click next
Select to perform a Custom install and click next
Uncheck all the boxes for things you never use: Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual F#, Graphics Library, etc.
I only use Visual Studio for c# and ASP.NET development, so I only install those options
Go for a coffee while it installs.
You may want to install windows updates (again).
I tend to set Visual Studio to the C# developer settings, you may disagree that's fine.
Download Eclipse (make sure it is the 64-bit version)
