Few days ago, Microsoft released Expression Studio 3 and made available for download as trail. I just downloaded and completed installation.

To install it, you requires:

  • Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating system.
  • Windows Media Player 11 (Windows XP only)
  • PC with 1 GHz or faster processor
  • 1 GB of RAM or more
  • 2 GB or more of available hard-disk space
  • .NET Framework 3.5 with Service Pack 1
  • Support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 graphics with Windows Vista Display Driver Model (WDDM) Driver, 128 MB of graphics RAM or more, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, 32-bits per pixel
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • 1024 x 768 or higher-resolution monitor with 24-bit color
  • Internet access (for Internet functionality; additional fees may apply)
  • Some product features require Silverlight 2.0, Firefox 3.0, Internet Explorer 7 and AJAX Suite

Actual requirements and product functionality may vary based on your system configuration and operating system and assumes non-concurrent product use.

The trail package is a compressed executable archive size of 249MB, that follow simple installation wizard with custom setting and finishes. The whole installation has been furnished this time and I’m sure, when you install it Microsoft Office 2010 TP splash screen will knock definitely.

The most interesting thing is, as like O2010 splash screen, the setup wizard follow the same style and look with minimize and close control at top of right corner. It is example of professionalism and attracts everyone and insists to say “Wow”.

I have captured installation screenshots, check it out.

    I have Also tried installing Microsoft Expression Studio 3 afterwards my pc just keep on rebooting. I have to run system restore to fix the problem. (Restore to point prior to the installation of Microsoft Expression Studio 3 ) After restoration my pc is back to normal again.
    What could be the cause?

    Your description of the Expression Studio 3 looks good, but on my system it does not install. In fact it crashes my system and causes a “NTLDR missing” error which makes the system reboot over and over until I reinstall the OS. Even worse I can’t find a support phone number or email address to get help with this piece of crap.

      I am pretty sure that the “NTLDR missing” error is not caused by Expression Studio 3 installation. You may be misunderstood, but the installation has nothing to do with NTLDR. Please refer to this article for more info regarding the NTLDR problem and how to fix it. http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000465.htm
