    c++ broken

    So I was complaining about c++ runtime errors w/ shootmania and stuff.
    Turns out the problem is much deeper. I tried downloading visualstudio express 2012 for windows 8
    Download | Microsoft Visual Studio 2012

    even though I usually just use cyg and g++

    I launch it and instantly I get
    "Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8 - EN has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

    If I hit Debug all it says is "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

    Sounds like something is corrupt in your system. Try doing a system restore to an earlier point in time, or to right after you installed it.

    always had c++ issues with windows 8
    this is from an upgradefrom windows 7, where C++ was fine. I know this because all my programs were working.
    I am trying to install visualstudio, so I never installed it yet.

    I am not too eager to do a clean install though.

    Never upgrade... ever.

    You want a well running system you HAVE to clean install.

    It's particularly bad when you have some insanely tweeky stuff like dev environments installed.

    Isn't there like a repair I can do or something? I mean I can't be the only person with C++ issues.

    EDIT: Oh wow... the issue also is happening on my laptop. How is this even possible? How can C++ be broken on both machines?

    They were both upgraded.

    More than likely, you installed the same program on both computers that corrupted your system files.

    Seems there are some problems there. I use VS 2010 and C++ is ok there. Oh, the dev os is running in a VM now, I also had problems on the main machine even in VS 2010: something corrupted after sp1 (what a mess) and I wasn't able to build any projects.

    g++ x64 is running well here also.

    Hence the dev os is running as VM: when you got problems, you easily restore from backup/snapshots.

Still broken. FAX send will hang/redial. Didn't work in 8.1PV - may have functioned in 8. The problem is FXST30.dll. Replacing it with the Windows 7 copy resolves it. This may require taking ownership. Someone here with Microsoft's ear might pass that along to the higher echelon.
