  • Because it's just a technology preview (it's right there in the name), not a finished product. As such, it contains several known bugs, so you should use the final product, which is VS2012.

  • I belive express versions of VS don't support the CTPs. Also, if possible, you shouldn't be using the CTPs at all. Instead you should be using VS2012.
