Using the virtual machine

There are quite a number of important instructions on how to use the VM including activating the VM, taking snapshots/check points, etc, documented in the “Working with the Visual Studio2015 ALM Virtual Machine.docx“.  Please read through the document prior to using the VM, even if you may have used the earlier version of the VM. The VM has about 15 GB of free hard disk space. Should you want to increase the size of the disk, you will need to do so before creating snapshots/check points. You can refer this article on TechNet for instructions on expanding the virtual hard disk.

The size of the download is about 30 GB. Hence, It is recommended that you use Free download manager .  This utility provides:

  •  Auto-resume support for interrupted downloads.
  •  Multiple simultaneous download streams for (usually) a much faster download experience.
  • As the name implies, it’s completely free.

  3. Select File-Import-Import list of URLs from clipboard or press CTRL+SHIFT+V
  4. Specify a group or accept the default group to begin downloading
  5. When the download is complete, double-click the .exe file to self-extract the RAR files to a folder
