-If there are no space constraints ​on your computer, download ​the Ultimate Edition as it contains many features that can be used in future CSS coursesTry to download this over wired connection as the size of the file can be very large.+{{ :​vs_community_2015_listing.png?​800 }} 
 +Because machines ​on campus are using VS Community you will need to use your @uw.edu email address to register the software ​the first time you use it. This is profile based registration so other users on the same machine will have to register individually.
