I've gone to the microsoft website only to be directed to an ISO that I have to download and burn.  I've already downloaded that and burnt it to a DVD only to find 1 file that says,
"This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification."

Can someone just show me the link to the executable?

http://www.microsoft.com/express/download/

instead of selecting the offline install, do the online install, very easy and simple, to do this go to the visual studio box and choose language then hit download.

And I can see where I can download Visual C# Express....I've even started the installation hoping it will have an option inside to switch to J#....but there's no option for that.  I'm assuming it's somehow stuck in this ISO...but the ISO doesn't work.

That is a cumulative download/install file for all of the programs above it, ive not personally used J# but could it be that it has benn included in the Visual Web Developer package?! Download that perhaps?!

if you click on the iso instructions it shows whats included, which as i say just seem to be the 4 that you can download seperately.

So...does this mean J# is no longer supported by MSFT?

Hi,

Wikipedia says:
"Retirement of the J# language and Java Language Conversion Assistant from future versions of Visual Studio, since the existing J# feature set largely meets customer needs and usage of J# is declining. The last version shipping with Visual Studio 2005 will be supported until 2015 as per the product life-cycle strategy."

So in other words, it isn't available anymore.

Regards,
Zoidi

Actually, I found a link inside Microsoft's forum that lets you download the 2005 version. I downloaded and installed...and completed my project ;-)
