Is is possible to install VS 2010 on a W2012 Server? I am trying to install VS 2010 with C# and it goes through all the motions and says it is successful. However, when I attempt to locate and run Visual Studio it is not there. I have tried running repair and even downloaded SP1 for VS 2010. From what I can tell all it installs is the VS Command Prompt, VS 2010 Documenation and VS Remote Debugger.

According to the system requirements, they do not list anything above 2008R2 Server so I would guess there are other dependencies that may or may not allow you to install it on 2012 Server.

Must be. I just downloaded VS 2013 Professional and it installed just fine. It was annoying with VS 2013 you cannot chooose which language to install. It installs all of them whether you want them or not.

They broke the Express versions up into specific language versions.

In VS 2013, you can still choose your primary language but hat only helps in the IDE not installation disk space used which would be my guess why you made the comment.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, I know hard drive space is cheap but I just hate to waste space. I do everyhting in C# but now I have all the other stuff just sitting there and it will never be used.

Why would you want to do your dev work on server os anyway? Nothing wrong with it, just seems odd.

I build images for all of my clients projects. Very seldom do I need a workstation. This way I have full blown SQL and all of my development tools in one place.
