The initial integration of XE Composer 2013 Update 5 with MS Visual Studio 2012 was replaced with Visual Studio 2010. The C++ compiler from composer is now showing link errors when run for test purposes. Tried to uninstall composer, with subsequent re-install to address compiler issues. The uninstall failed to complete normally, with the final log sequence as follows: === Verbose logging stopped: 4/22/2014 8:13:02 === MSI(i) [08:13:02.640] | ISSA(e) [08:13:10.839] | (9697.228): issa::Parser::error: factor: syntax error ISSA(i) [08:13:10.839] | (5729.297): LicenseHandler::validateSerialNumber():_____________:_____________ ISSA(e) [08:13:10.839] | (5729.326): LicenseHandler::validateSerialNumber(): Failed to validate serial number prefix ISSA(i) [08:13:10.855] | (5265.1097): RegCenterAdapter: hmac_hash(): calculated ISSA(i) [08:13:10.855] | (5265.410): RegCenterAdapter::RecordLicenseInstallData3() - _____________:RPB:w:Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 540 @ 2.53GHz::feature_disabled:4CNA::w:INTEL64:ESD:Intel(R) Composer XE 2013 Update 5 for Windows*::::UNKNOWN:NONEVAL:UNKNOWN PSET(i) [08:24:12.464] | (2145.1195): [CSetupApp]ExitInstance Attempts to repair the installation fail as well. Would appreciate any suggestions with respect to workarounds.

Brian, did you use "add remove programs" and completely removed composer XE? And then install the newer version from scratch? Doing so should successfully install the package......

Kittur, Thanks for the inquiry. The sequence I followed is as follows: 1) Installed MS Visual Studio 2012; 2) Installed XE Composer 2013 Update 5 with integration to Studio 2012; 3) Learned of the need to re-vert back to MS Visual Studio 2010 ; so, 4) Uninstalled MS Visual Studio 2012; 5) Installed MS Visual Studio 2010 (to replace the previous version) . When issues with Composer were detected , attempted to Uninstall XE Composer 2013 Update 5, and that is where the Uninstall failed. I wanted to re-install Composer with MS Visual Studio 2010 in place to see if that would address the issues that arose after MS VS 2010 replaced MS VS 2012, but since the uninstall failed, I couldn't.

Brian, I checked with the install folks and unfortunately what you experienced is expected. Apparently, the installer depends a lot on VS integration, so uninstalling the VS2012 caused this problem. Could you please try the following workaround and let me know? Using Add/Remove Program: 1) Install VS2012 2) Uninstall Composer 2013 Update 5 3) Uninstall VS 2012 4) If everything is OK please reinstall Composer 2013 Update 5 and select integration to VS2010 If it does not help please attach the log file from: %temp%\ComposerXE2013_*.log and I can pass it on to the team for further investigation on the issue, appreciate much. _Kittur

Sure Brian, let me know if the workaround resolves the problem. If you still have the issue after doing so, then you'll have to attach the log file I indicated in the previous communication that'll help further investigation, thanks. _Kittur
