The Visual Studio 2010

Its time to say sayonara to my good old development machine that I have been abusing for quite some time; bought it when Vista came out; and one needed a machine with better graphics to run its Aero desktop. Visual Studio 2010 will surely going to be must have environment; due to its solid foundation, wide adoption and given newer Visual Studios don’t get installed on Windows 2003 / XP Smile

I am documenting here; what I might need to install to recreate my 2010 development setup on the newer machine. Here’s a list of things and the order in which they needs to get installed; a self reminder! I will update the list if I have missed any; feel free to comment!
