Hi there,
I am going to teach myself with Programming Windows by Charles Petzold via a video tutorial. The tutor suggested the learners should install Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop as he was going to demonstrate the tutorial with the software.
I have two questions and a problem about that as below.
1.Can I replace Visual Studio Express (VSE) with Visual Studio Community (VSC)?
I find the volume of VSE is around 16GB and that of VSC is just around 4GB. I am not an IT professional and not going to use it for commencial purpose. 
Can Visual C++ 6.0 meet for the purpose of mine -learning Programming? I've installed VC++6.0.
2. During my instalation of VSE, a problem occured. My operation system is Windows 7 -32-bit. 
Please see the attachment. 
Many thanks!
PS. For #2, I intended to upload a picture as the attachment from my laptop, but it seems the forum doesn't allow. Anyone knows how to upload a picture from the laptop but not to provide with a link?

Visual Studio Community should do everything you need it to do!  If you install it and just create a C++ console application you shouldn't have a problem following the tutorial.
