I'm trying to install Visual Studio 2010 SP1 on a Windows 7 x86 machine. Microsoft broke the links in their download area, so I can't use the link at Description of Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1. I found it in Microsoft Catalog, but this shows up when I click Download:

I found a download called vs10sp1-kb983509_90d66d880ef49c9b9a9a0da5e7fc7b2ff907f00e.exe in the list. The vs10sp1 and kb983509 sounds about right. When I attempt to run it, it exits about half way into the Extracting portion. It does not provide a message.

How do I locate and install the service pack?


Here's the actual problem I am encountering under VS2010. I'm guessing the service pack will resolve it: Error 'LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt' after installing Visual Studio 2012 Release Preview.

  • @Ramhound - As I understand it, its still available if one purchases an MSDN subscription. Just like the WannaCry update... – jww May 30 '17 at 11:38
  • I still have the VS2010SP1dvd1.iso . Use Dropbox, create a file request and I'll upload it to you. – magicandre1981 May 30 '17 at 15:41
  • Actually, I believe this is still available via Windows Update. Or at least I have it sitting there... i.imgur.com/FUDOC6s.png – Bob Jun 2 '17 at 5:02
  • @jww any update? do you still care about the ISO or not? – magicandre1981 Jun 3 '17 at 7:43

How do I locate and install the service pack?

Recently, I was able to locate older versions of Visual Studio, on the Visual Studio website. It requires a free subscription in order to download.
