Upgrade from VS 2012 to VS 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to upgrade from VS 2012 to Vs2013.

    http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Visual-Studio-Professional-2013/productID.284832200

    Will this product allow me to upgrade from VS 2012 to VS 2013? Or is it a VS 2013 upgrade?

    I wish they would say outright that you can upgrade from a previous version of VS. It's not clear and I don't want to waste $300.00.

  • Hi,

    I am not sure whether we can buy VS Professional 2013(Upgrade) which costs $299 to upgrade VS2012 to VS2013. I did not find related information about this upgrade product.  In order to get the precise answer, I suggest contacting Microsoft store sales: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/DisplayHelpContactUsPage/

  • Thank you for the link. There is not even a contact link on the page I provided.

    It amazes me that MS would not provide a little more information. 

    From what I read on Amazon you can only upgrade from VS 2012 Pro and that's all. But that is not directly from Microsoft. So it could be wrong.

    Thanks again

  • Hi,

    Yes, Microsoft does not state directly that we can upgrade from VS2012 Professional to VS2013 Pro through $299 VS2013 Professional 2013(Upgrade) product. So I suggest calling Microsoft Store Sales to get precise support from this page: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/DisplayHelpContactUsPage/

    Thank you for your understanding.
