I'm getting the message "Compiler not Found" when I click the C++ tab in RackAFX. This is my first time setting up, and I've downloaded the Visual Studio 2012 successfully. Can anyone please help me with this issue? Thank you.

OH, sorry, the subject line is supposed to say "Compiler not Found".


Windows 7 64-bit and Visual Studio 2012

See the post here:


Between me, the students, and the book readers, we have just about every combination of OS/Compiler and generally if there is an issue, I find out fast (saturated with email) and this issue has only come up regarding the above (admin login). Also, VS2012 has had some major issues lately not related to RackAFX (see the Compiler Errors topic). If you still can't get it to work, try installing VS2008 or 2010 instead to see if it really is a VS2012 issue or not.

Hope this gets you up and running - let us know if you still have problems (or if/how you solve this one).

- Will
