Rename "Allow MFC 11 to run in XP SP3" idea
Rename the following idea:
to something more descriptive to gain attention of users.
Title: "Allow VS11 C++ applications to run on XP SP3"
Description: "C++ binaries compiled with Visual Studio 11 beta do not run on XP SP3. Allow the VS11 CRT (and possibly MFC) to run on XP SP3."
Thanks for the suggestion – I updated the title per your suggestion.

Pointless. No need to waste effort on XP support in VS12. XP is old and needs to die.
200 votes and nothing. I can't believe Microsoft is actually trying to hide the XP support item...
I predicted that the native multi-targeting card would be played, it it was, on vcblog, and over 50 negative comments in one day. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vcblog/archive/2012/04/18/10295093.aspx
so be careful in re-wording that one.

Microsoft, we know you read this. Is a few clicks too much?
"allow VS11 c++ applications to run on XP SP3" may not be good because the "native-multitargeting" loophole could be used as an excuse. The original is clear that the VC11 libraries cannot be used on XP SP3. I agree it may need adding of CRT on the main line but "allow VS11" is no good because of what I mentioned.
Yes! Many people still don't know that VS11 doesn't allow XP targeting.
