I just ran across this:

Microsoft has released a series of free tools as part of its Visual Express
/ Coding4Fun campaign.

Of note was: "Working in conjunction with LEGO, Microsoft created an
application that enables the robotics community to use Visual Studio Express
to program their LEGO MINDSTORMS robots to do specific commands, such as
maneuvering around obstacles, and control them from their computer keyboard
or mouse."
