    Does MS Visual C++ 2010 Express work in windows 8 Pro?

    The "Windows 8 compatibility assistant" says that Visual C++ 2010 Express installed in my Vista laptop is not compatible with Windows 8 Pro. However, I've learned that many programs that Win8's compatibility assistant says are not compatible will install and run fine.

    I need to continue using the Visual C++ 2010 version since I'm programming with SFML and it's compiled to work with the VC++ 2010 version and I don't think it has been compiled for the VC++ 2012 version yet.

    So has anyone installed VC++ 2010 Express in Windows 8 Pro yet and have it working fine? The reduced price of $40 for Win8 Pro expires 1/31/13 so I want to get it soon if it will work with VC++ 2010.

    Oh, and BTW, is MS Visual Studio Express 2012 still free? I wasn't able to determine that for sure by looking at the MS website.

    Thanks,
    Raptor

    Scratch this question. I found that VS "Express" 2012 is free. I was probably looking at the non Express version before.

    Answers for the other questions still needed though.

    Thanks,
