I'm not sure whether this question of mine applies to Software or to Operating Systems, so I'll take the risk and post the same text to both.

I just downloaded and installed Visual Basic 2010 Express and installed it on my brand new HP Z200 Workstation running Windows 7, 2 GB memory. After restarting and after bringing up the app, VB10E comes up with a Start Page, where I click the link "Quickly Create Your First Application" and then "Get Started by Creating a Picture Viewer (Tutorial 1)." Once I do, it takes me to the Bing search page, which seems to indicate that the link I just clicked is invalid.

I posted this issue to Microsoft (https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/556247/link-on-start-page-is-broken), but they eventually closed the issue for Not Reproducible. Anybody else seeing the same issue? What could I be doing wrong? When I Google this issue, the few others who seem to be having success with VB10E don't say what OS they're using. Thoughts?

I have not yet used VS 2010. But you can access the pages from within the MSDN Express or right from your browser.

You can find the tutorial here : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd...8VS.100%29.aspx
