Microsoft released an updated Visual Studio 2010 ALM Virtual Machine of the latest release of Visual Studio 2010 Lab Management. Evaluate the new capabilities of VSLM 2010 which enables teams to accelerate setup/tear down and restoration of complex virtual environments to a known state for test execution and build automation. It extends build automation by automating virtual machine provisioning, build deployment and build verification in an integrated manner.

It also allows testers to file rich bugs with links to environment checkpoints that developers can use to recreate complex environments, effectively reducing wasted time and resources in your development and test lifecycle.

Hands-on-Labs / Demo Scripts: The 9 hands-on-labs / demo scripts which accompany this vm cover several of the core capabilities of conducting app lifecycle management with VS2010. Each document can be used by an individual in a self-paced hands-on-lab capacity, to learn how to perform a given set of tasks, or used by a presenter to deliver a demo or classroom-style training.

How to use this VM: For your convenience, the same vm has been ported to three different virtualization platforms. For instructions on how to use this vm, download "Working with Visual Studio 2010 Virtual Machine.docx." This guidance will help you get started with vm using virtualization technology of your choice (Hyper-V, Virtual PC 2007, or Windows [7] Virtual PC). It also includes the username and password for this vm.

This image will effectively stop working on June 1, 2011 when the trial software (SQL Server, Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server) stops working.
