SharePoint and Office 2010 RTM available for download

If you have a subscription to either MSDN or Technet then RTM SharePoint Server and Office Professional Plus 2010 RTM became available late yesterday for download. Since SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Designer (SPD) 2010 are available for free they weren’t posted on either MSDN or Technet.  Instead they can be downloaded directly from the Microsoft Download Center.  Just check out the links below:

SharePoint Designer 2010 (32 bit) – 

SharePoint Designer 2010 (64 bit) –

Remember that your installation of Designer must match the installation of any other office products.  If you’ve installed Office X64 then you can only install SPD X64.  If you’ve installed the 32 bit version of Office then you can only install the 32 bit version of Designer.  You can install both SPD 2007 and 2010 on the same box, but since SPD 2007 only comes as a 32 bit app you can only install the 32 bit version of SPD 2010 with it.

I am a SharePoint MVP who has specialized in Microsoft products since the mid-1990s. As a "Jack of all Trades" I have developed expertise as a network administrator, developer, and DBA. I works as a consultant/trainer where my breadth of knowledge makes me ideally suited to combine Administrative, Development, and SharePoint Designer topics. My 20+ years of experience and broad background make me a much sought after resource for SharePoint questions that cross traditional boundaries. I was a contributing author to the Developer's Guide to Windows SharePoint Services v3 Platform and the SharePoint Server 2007 Deployment Best Practices. My most recent book, the MCTS Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Configuration Study Guide: Exam 70-631, was released in October, 2009.
