So I've been trying to install VS 2010 on windows 8. I know it works on windows 7, and I just recently upgraded to windows 8.
Since I'm a student, I downloaded my version of VS 2010 from the MSDNAA website, to which my school is subscribed to.
I can't install, nor even mount the .iso (which is strange...). Since I'm also developing for C++, and my instructor for my C++ course insists on using the g++ compiler, I've downloaded the Ubuntu ISO as well, and I also can't mount it.
In both cases, both the VS 2010 ISO and Ubuntu ISOs are corrupt. I don't think that this is the issue, as I can extract both ISOs fully with no errors. I just can't mount it.
After extraction, I clicked the setup.exe file that came out of the VS 2010 ISO, and I was presented with the following message:
The program or feature /*file path to iso*/ cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.
Any ideas/solutions on what to do? Thanks.
