    Good morning all,

    I'm trying to find a legit download for Visual Studio Express 2012 (Free) which will run on a Win7 Ultimate 64bit O/S.
    Any links i've tried (And there's been many) bring me to VSE 2012 for Win8.
    I've been reading what seems to be contradictory info on VSE 2012:vertag::vertag::vertag:. Some says it won't run on Win7, others say it will run on Win7 and above.

    It's leaving my head spinning:eek:. All i want is a download of VSE (Free) 2012 that WILL run on Win7 Ultimate 64bit.

    Any help would really be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,:biggrin:

    Do you know of any other good free alternatives to visual Studio Express for a novice like myself.

    The reason i ask is i've been told that VSE 2012 was good for beginner/novices as it had less bloatware or intimidating than other S/W for more experienced/advanced programmers.
