I have Measurement Studio 2009, and I would like to use it with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. Is this possible?
Measurement Studio 2009 and earlier .NET class libraries and user interface controls work with Visual Studio 2010. The Measurement Studio 2009 Visual C++ libraries do NOT work with Visual Studio 2010.
Measurement Studio 2009 is designed to work with Visual Studio 2008; therefore, Measurement Studio does not install shipping examples and does not integrate with Visual Studio 2010. This means that if you install Measurement Studio 2009 with Visual Studio 2010, the Measurement Studio .NET controls are not in the Toolbox and you do not have a Measurement Studio menu item in the Visual Studio 2010 toolbar. However, you can add the Measurement Studio .NET controls to the Toolbox manually. Refer to Adding Measurement Studio 2009 User Interface Controls to the Toolbox for more information.
Note: Measurement Studio 2010 released in November of 2010 and supports Visual Studio 2010.

If you only have Visual Studio 2010 installed, then you must unselect features that require specific versions of Visual Studio to be on the system. These features include the Visual Studio Integration feature and all of the Visual C++ support features.
