You get all this for free in Visual Studio Community 2013

This post is about installing Visual Studio Community 2013 on a Windows 8.1 Professional on a laptop computer (Toshiba Satellite S70 series).

I wanted to see what I will get installing Visual Studio Community 2013. I downloaded vs_community.exe from this site here:
Installation starts with double clicking the downloaded program from the downloaded location.

You require something like 8 GB for the program. Check and accept license terms to go forward.
I selected everything as shown here .

I started late in the night and I just let it extract files from internet and install. I just clicked Install
In the morning I noticed that installation was successful and I could launch the application. You will have to have a Windows Live account or other authentication.

Clicking on Start Visual Studio brings up the start screen. I chose the blue theme.
