The path to Visual Studio at my Windows system is E:\Programme (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0
Unfortunately Instant Setup did not find and configurate Visual Studio even though the PATH-variable has been set before calling this function.
How can I achieve that Instant Setup can do a good job?
Or could somebody be good enough to provide screenshots for a manual set-up?

Can we do something like that? If the first algorithm fails, we use the second way through register to find accurate path. The risk is not big, but for some cases the second path may be good. The biggest drawback of current implementation is that it cannot detects custom path installations.
I have got one additional question - have we got functions to read system registry.
I recognized that the installer of Visual Studio put some files to the C drive though I had specified the E drive as installation target (Microsoft SDKs, Microsoft SQL Server, etc.).
Kindly double check whether the directories enumerated above are sufficient. Perhaps links into the SDK directories are missing. If so, please let me know.
The key question is "does it work"?
Instant setup is trying to find 'real files/directories', so if it found them on "C:", then they are really there. In this case, it looks like Visual Studio and C++ compiler were installed on E:\, but SDK was installed on C:\
I have both VS2013 AND VS2015 installed on my system in the Program Files (x86) directory. UPP Legacy finds VS2013 (because it appears first??), but not VS2015. I want it to find 2015 because of all the new features in both UPP and VS2015.
Is there a way to get UPP to find VS2015 in my situation?
PS. (To avoid the question, "why would you do that?") I need both because I interface with MANY people who create projects in both of them and I can't waste time with conversions, etc. Is it possible for UPP to search for ALL versions and let me choose the one I want to use in the legacy setup?
