MSVC 2010 on Win 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does MSVS 2010 run on Win 8?  No experience with Win 8 as yet, so I don't know how much of a change in the actual kernel.  So, I'm putting the question out to the masses with more experience.  Does the 2010 environment have any issues with the Win 8 OS??  For that matter, how about 2012??

    Aside, that is, from the distracting UI...  LOL

  • Yes, VS 2010 runs fine on Windows 8, as does VS 2012.

    I have VS 2010 Ultimate and all VS 2010 Express editions installed on Win 8 here and I've experienced no issues. I also have VS 2012 Ultimate and all VS 2012 Express editions installed.

  • Thanks,  I've ordered a new laptop, but now days, they only come with Win8.  I've been debating just taking off Win8, and installing win7 before I even start putting on the IDEs.  From my slight experience in the showrooms, I'm not all that happy with Win8, but that is the at a glance viewpoint.

    I'll take your advice and work with it and let everyone know about my experience...
