Microsoft has quietly rolled out new Windows 11 Enterprise VMs designed to help developers build apps and services for the company’s new operating system (OS).

The download appeared recently on a web page that originally hosted Windows 10 development environments. Strangely, the title of the page remains unchanged, despite the fact Windows 10 VMs are no longer available.

Available for VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox and Parallels hypervisors, the new VMs come pre-packaged with everything a developer might need to build a Windows 11 application, from coding environments and samples to SDKs.

Windows 11 VMs for devs

Although Microsoft has made no official communications about the new Windows 11 VMs, a little information can be gleaned from the support page.

Apparently, the VMs include Windows 11 Enterprise edition, the Windows 10 SDK, Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and Windows Terminal. By default, developer mode is also enabled, allowing devs to install unsigned apps for testing.

The main caveat is that the Windows 11 VMs are set to expire on January 9, 2022, leaving devs only a few weeks to play around before the holidays. Presumably, an updated set of VMs will go live after this date.
