    How to update from VS 2012 to VS 2013 without unintalling?


    Hello everyone,
    I am running Windows x64 with Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate. I know that VS2013 was released a few days back. Can someone provide me the instructions how to upgradefrom VS 2012 to VS 2013 Ultimate without uninstalling VS 2012 if at all there is a way ? Also if uninstalling is absolutely necessary I want to uninstall VS 2012 and all its depending Visual C++ Redistributable libraries so that when I install VS 2013 there isn't any redundancy or inconsistency(view the attached screenshot).
    Thanks.

I've just received an email from Microsoft with a link to download Office 2013 RTM Evaluation (I'm currently evaluating The Preview). I'm downloading it now, but I'm confuse, it doesn't say if I have to uninstall the Preview first or install on top of it? Can anyone enlighten a little fellow? :)
