  • Hi PAUL9199,

    Could you please provide us with details of the installation? Any error message when you install VS Community 2013?

    I have set up a Win8.1 VM to install VS2013 community and VS2012 Professional in one machine. The fact is they can be installed on one machine. Please check the result screenshot:

    Per my experience, we can't install VS2013 community and VS2013 Professional on one machine. Is there nay typo in this sentence "Visual Studio Community 2013 will not install if Visual Studio 2012 prof installed "? Did you write "Visual Studio 2013" to "Visual Studio 2012" for mistake? 

    If you issue is you can't install VS2013 community and VS2012 Pro on Win8.1, please provide us with the error message when you install VS2013 community. You can also check the VS2013 community installer to isolate there is something wrong with the installer. Download the ISO image of VS2013 community from Microsoft official website. This link: http://www.visualstudio.com/products/visual-studio-community-vs

    Verify its checksum to make sure that it matches the correct one. The correct SHA-1 Value is “051425045547B212228AB0B5A7BAF8E0B686E886”. You can get details about how to verify the checksum from this blog. Make sure that your Windows is patched up. Disable the anti-virus software, install VS at last.

    If you concern is about how to install VS2013 community when VS2013 Pro has been installed, I'm afraid that you can only install one of them on one machine.

    Best regards,
