I have successfully downloaded and installed Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Express Edition from, but I am not getting any registration key for this product from Microsoft (though I followed all steps correctly). Without registration it can be used for 30 days only.

As far as I know, the Express Editions are available as free for individual developers,
open source projects, academic research, education, and small professional teams.

The registration key was available for the 2008 version, but the new one doesn't need a key. I recommend checking the official website to download the new version to test it.
