To get started, simply install and switch to the "Settings" tab and connect to your database and click the "Save" icon and you're off and running. We will be publishing a series of video's on how to use ES2009 soon. Watch for these on our blog.
After installation you should see "EntitySpaces" on the Visual Studio "Tools" menu.

It's really very easy. If you are using an international version of windows you will need to follow those steps.
