I decided to make an installation ISO as this definitely could help for repairing corrupted installation, sharing with friends, or installation in office/college (screw firewall, proxy, etc). I believe Microsoft will only release Offline Installation for Windows Phone Developer Tools only for Final Release.

I do not have chance to do test installation in many system – slow installation, bla bla bla. It doesn’t allow me to install in Windows Vista without SP1 installed and I have no access to any 64-bit system. Hence I only tested on the following box:

  • Operating System: Windows 7
  • Platform: x86
  • No prior installation of: Visual Studio 2010 RTM; Visual Studio 2010 Express; Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP March; ( I installed Visual Studio 2010 RTM after installing this, and both works fine )

Web installer can be downloaded from Microsoft Download – Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP (April Refresh). Scroll down for offline installation ISO image.
Few details that we already know. It’s an April Refresh release – which fixes compatibility issue with Visual Studio 2010 RTM.

Update:
Tested this installer in Windows XP. By following Aaron’s Tips, open “baseline.dat” with Notepad, look for the section named [gencomp7788], change the value InstallOnWinXP from 1 to 0. WPDT CTP can be successfully installed in Windows XP, but unfortunately we will not be able to run Windows Phone 7 Simulator as XDE is not compatible with Windows XP.

Update 2:
Latest Beta offline installer is up.

    Hi, can i interchange the links?
    Doesn’t work for me

    • http://www.sudarpo.net Sudarpo

      Yes, the links are interchangeable.

      As fellow IT-mate, saying “doesn’t work for me” is really not helpful. Could you give more details, i.e. error message, etc. ?
      What is your platform ?
