Virtual Machine is now available for ALM 2012

I have just received a mail from my friend Brian Keller Acknowledging me of the availability of the new Hyper-V machine for ALM 2012.

Important information about this virtual machine:

·        The share above is a Redmond-based server, so it will slow down if several people use it at once. You can fall back to the public download servers if the Redmond share is slow.

·        Windows is configured to set the system clock to May 16, 2012 every time you start this machine up. This is to support the project management hands-on-lab. If you want to work with this virtual machine beyond the specific hands-on-labs scenarios, you will need to disable the Set Date and Time task (Task Scheduler -> Task Scheduler Library -> Set Date and Time -> Right-Click -> Disable)

·        Please take a few minutes to read the “Working with…” document for some important instructions for properly importing and working with this virtual machine.

·        This is a Hyper-V virtual machine and was built to work with Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 8, or Windows Server 2012.(The instructions provided assume you are using Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, so steps may vary slightly if you are using a different host operating system)


This virtual machine is configured with:
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2012 RTM
Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2012 RTM
Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010
Microsoft Project 2010
Microsoft Office Professional 2010 (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook)
Sample users and data required to support hands-on-lab scripts which accompany this download and exercise many of the new Visual Studio 2012 application lifecycle management capabilities along with capabilities which were new in the Visual Studio 2010 release.

You can download it from the Following Link:

Enjoy! Smile
