I am writing this to the C++ topic because I guess there may be more people who tried what I am trying. My first goal is to get Visual C++ 2013 working.
I have downloaded the ISO image with the Visual Studio 2013 RC and tried to install it. However, it requires to install Internet Explorer 10 first. No matter how much I try, I cannot get the IE10 installed on my Windows 7 Enterprise (64-bit). I have tried both Windows Update Service way, and standalone package. I have followed the troubleshoot page displayed by the IE10 installer -- no luck. (The Windows6.1-KB2670838-x64.msu and Windows6.1-KB2786081-x64.msu report that they are not applicable to my computer.)
Have installed the VS2013RC successfully? Did you observed the same problem?
Thanks for your time and experience,
