Portable Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate


Portable Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate: A Dream Come True?




Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate is one of the most powerful and comprehensive development tools available for Windows. It supports a wide range of programming languages, such as C#, VB.NET, C++, F#, and more. It also offers many features and tools to help developers create, debug, test, and deploy high-quality applications. However, Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate is not a lightweight software. It requires a significant amount of disk space, memory, and processing power to run smoothly. Installing it on a computer can take a long time and consume a lot of resources.

But what if you could run Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate on any computer without installing it? What if you could carry it around on a flash drive and use it on any machine that has Windows and .NET Framework installed? Wouldn't that be a dream come true for many developers who need to work on different projects and environments?


Well, this dream may not be as far-fetched as it sounds. There are some ways to make Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate portable, or at least semi-portable. In this article, we will explore some of these methods and their pros and cons.


Method 1: Using VirtualBox Portable




One way to run Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate on a flash drive is to use VirtualBox Portable, a portable version of the popular virtualization software VirtualBox. VirtualBox allows you to create and run virtual machines (VMs) that can emulate different operating systems and hardware configurations. By using VirtualBox Portable, you can create a VM that has Windows and Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate installed on it, and store it on your flash drive. Then, you can plug your flash drive into any computer that has VirtualBox Portable installed, and run your VM from there.


The advantages of this method are:



  • You can use the full features and functionality of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate without any limitations or modifications.



  • You can isolate your development environment from the host computer, avoiding any potential conflicts or compatibility issues.



  • You can easily backup, restore, or transfer your VM to another flash drive or computer.




The disadvantages of this method are:



  • You need a large flash drive (at least 16 GB) to store your VM and its files.



  • You need a fast flash drive (preferably USB 3.0 or eSATA) to ensure good performance and responsiveness of your VM.



  • You need a powerful host computer (with enough CPU, RAM, and disk space) to run your VM smoothly.



  • You need to install VirtualBox Portable on every computer you want to use your VM on.




Method 2: Using Thinstall




Another way to run Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate on a flash drive is to use Thinstall, a software that can create portable versions of Windows applications. Thinstall works by capturing the changes made by an application during its installation and execution, and packaging them into a single executable file that can run without installation. By using Thinstall, you can create a portable version of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate that can run directly from your flash drive.


The advantages of this method are:



  • You do not need to install or run any additional software on the host computer.



  • You do not need to create or manage any VMs or virtual disks.



  • You can use a smaller flash drive (around 8 GB) to store your portable application and its files.




The disadvantages of this method are:



  • You may not be able to use all the features and functionality of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, as some components may not be captured or packaged correctly by Thinstall.



  • You may encounter some errors or bugs when running your portable application on different computers with different configurations.



  • You may need to update or repackage your portable application whenever there is a new version or patch for Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.




Conclusion




As you can see, there are some ways to make Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate portable, or at least semi-portable. However, none of them are perfect or easy. They all have their own trade-offs and challenges. Therefore, you should carefully consider your needs and preferences before choosing one of them. Alternatively, you can also look for other development tools that are designed to be portable, such as SharpDevelop or Code::Blocks. They may not be as powerful or comprehensive as Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, but they may be more suitable for your portable development needs.
