    Windows developer virtual machines released - December 2016 build


    We’re releasing the December 2016 edition of our evaluation and licensed Windows developer virtual machines (VM) on Windows Dev Center. The VMs come in Hyper-V, Parallels, VirtualBox and VMWare flavors. The evaluation version will expire on 04/08/17.

    Evaluation VM contain:


    Licensed VM contain:


    If you don’t currently have a Windows 10 Pro license, you can get one from the Microsoft Store. If you just want to try out Windows 10 and UWP, use the free evaluation version of the VMs. The evaluation copies will expire after a pre-determined amount of time.

    The Azure portal also has virtual machines you can spin up with the Windows Developer tooling installed as well!

    If you have feedback on the VMs, please provide it over at the Windows Developer Feedback UserVoice site.

    Just a note here for people wondering why they might want a free temporary version:

    You can us it to go to sites you might not, on your Host(bare metal machine),
    or to download software, from a site you're not sure about, like Download(.)com.
    And if it comes in a wrapper like OpenCandy, you can extract the installer you want, move it to OneDrive, and after that, delete the machine.
    I say do it this way because, you used to be able to snag the installer using 7 Zip,
    but some wrappers now are made so you have to click through to get to it, which can be dangerous. After installing in the VM, you can usually find the installer .exe file you wanted in either the install folder(Program Files or Program Files X86, or ProgramData folder, or your User AppData folder.
