    Hi, I have doubts about this:

    I just installed Windows 8.1 Pro WMC x64bits, but still need to install other programs like Corel Draw X6, also products Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc), and others, and they need to install different versions of Visual Studio C++ 2005, 2008, 2010 Redistributables, some in both versions x86 and x64, and drivers also need. My question is, would it be better previously installed versions of Visual Studio in order, after the clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro WMC x64bits? Or maybe the parallel installation of different versions of VS C++ could generate some kind of conflict?

    Thank you for your replies :)

    The CRTs are installed to SxS, so it doesn't matter how they're installed and in what order--there won't be any conflict.
