Download ASP.NET MVC For Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1

I am happy today, i was not expecting MVC for VS 2010 installer so early, As i posted earlier MVC was not included in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1, and Microsoft promised that time that they will release a separate installer.

an installer for ASP.NET MVC for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 is now available on Codeplex.

you can download ASP.NET MVC for Visual Studio (VS) 2010 Beta 1 here

please note this release is only for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1, installer says this is ASP.NET MVC 1.1, but as the readme notes point out, this is really ASP.NET MVC 1.0 retargeted for Visual Studio 2010. The 1.1 is just a placeholder version number.

also see the full release notes included with this release for more details. There are some known issues with the release

Phil Haack mentioned on his blog that When VS10 Beta 2 comes out, you won’t need to download a separate standalone installer to get ASP.NET MVC (though a standalone installer will be made available for VS2008 users that will run on ASP.NET 3.5 SP1). A pre-release version of ASP.NET MVC 2 will be included as part of the Beta 2 installer as described in the …


One cool new feature of VS10 is that snippets now work in the HTML editor. snippets are also included in this release . To install the snippets:

  1. Unzip "ASP.NET MVC" into "C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Visual Studio 10\Code Snippets\Visual Web Developer\My HTML Snippets", where "C:\" is your OS drive.
  2. Visual Studio will automatically detect these new files.
