Screwed up my VS11 installation by uninstalling .NET 4.5 to install MVC 4 beta.
If these are incompatible, why does the ASP.NET MVC 4 page list a VS 11 beta that includes MVC 4?
Can I have MVC 4 beta incompatible with .NET 4.5 and VS11 requiring .NET 4.5 installed side-by-side?
Am I alone in finding the documentation incomplete/inconsistent in this regard?

As far as I am concerned, ASP.NET MVC 4 and ASP.NET 4 is compatible with VS 2011. Likewise, ASP.NET 4 and ASP.NET MVC 3 is compatible with VS 2010.
If you mentioned that it is incompatible, would you please advise the error message you see on your end? Thanks!

The MVC 4 release notes claim incompat with .NET 4.5
And I believe VS11 requires 4.5.
I don't understand how the MVC page lists a VS11 Beta that includes MVC 4 and just seeking advice so as not to screw up my machine.

The Visual Studio 11 Beta contains MVC 4 beta. You can also install Visual Studio 2010 and the MVC 4 for that release on the same machine as Visual Studio 11.
The items that were not compatible are the following:
- If you have Visual Studio Developer Preview installed on the machine you could not on the same machine have Visual Studio 2010 and the MVC 4 Beta for that release installed.
So basically if you want to run the Beta of MVC 4 you can't have Visual Studio Developer Preview on the machine. All the other combinations work.
