    • The download is an .iso package used to create DVD images. Click the Download button on this page to start the download of the .iso image. This is pre-release software and is best installed on a clean machine. Thus, please take note of the following:
      • You must UNINSTALL all previous Commerce Server versions. Using a clean system that does not have a previous version of a Commerce Server installed upon it is strongly recommended.
      • Important: The Microsoft Commerce Server Foundation assemblies and namespaces have been refactored to provide better organization. Further information is available in the Commerce Server 2009 "R2" Readme.
      • Setup and Configuration is not yet final in this release. The Configuration Wizard will walk you through much of the process, but it is essential that you consult the Quick Install Guide to successfully install and configure the CTP.
      • Important: If you are deploying the solution storefront, there are manual configuration tasks that you must complete after running the Commerce Server Configuration Wizard. Please refer to “Setting up the Solution Storefront” in the Microsoft Commerce Server 2009 code name “R2” Quick Install Guide for more information.
      • The Commerce Server 2009 "R2" product documentation is available as an installable component during setup. Once installed, you can review the documentation by going to Start>All Programs>Microsoft Commerce Server 9.0>Documentation>Commerce Server Documentation.

      • CTPs are for evaluation purposes only and are intended only for short-term use in a development and test environment. Although the Commerce Server team strives to minimize breaking changes and offer an uninstall/install upgrade path between pre-releases there may be occasions where the best upgrade course for you will be to start with a fresh environment. Note: This CTP will stop functioning on June 6, 2010.
