Hey, where’s my 2nd CD for Visual Studio Standard that came in my "Special Edition for Small Business Specialists" MAPS shipment?

I’ve seen a few messages floating around about a single CD of Visual Studio Standard being included in these kits; however, when you go to install it, it asks for CD 2, which is mysteriously not there.  After seeing a couple of these messages, I escalated internally to find out what might be going on and here’s what I just heard back:


“It turns out the 2nd CD was not shipped in the kit because it was missed. North America and EMEA kits have all shipped. I’m waiting to hear back from Ops to see how quickly they can replicate this CD to ship out. EMEA is closed today and Monday though.”


So we are now aware of the issue and working to correct it.  I’ll be sure to give you any updates once I have them.


Thank you and have a wonderful day,
