  • Hi CosimicDebris,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Visual Studio 2013 system requirements are in the below, it doesn't contain Windows Vista:

    Supported Operating Systems

    • Windows 8.1 (x86 and x64)
    • Windows 8 (x86 and x64)
    • Windows 7 (x86 and x64)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (x64)
    • Windows Server 2012 (x64)

    Supported Architectures

    • 32-bit (x86)
    • 64-bit (x64)

    Please refer to :


    As of Visual Studio 2012, Microsoft has limited compatibility to Windows 7 or higher. If you want to run Visual Studio on a Vista operating system, you will need Visual Studio 2010 or 2008. Here's a link to the 2010 express edition: http://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs#DownloadFamilies_4
