Visual Basic Express is the development environment that we use to program EwE. This is required if you want to program or look into the source code of EwE. Note: you only need Visual Basic Express to develop on EwE. Visual Studio (not free) enable you to have more functionality such as Class Diagrams and Nested Project Structure which is not crucial to EwE development.

  1. Download Visual Basic: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vb/download/.
  2. Run the file called vbsetup.exe.
  3. Go though installation process...
  4. For installation options: MSDN Express Edition is recommended but not nessary, and SQL Server is not required.
  5. The installation program will now download the required files. (Internet is required).
  6. Updates at this time is not required.
  7. Register VB 2005 Express at your discretion.
