Does Parallel Studio work with Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition? If not, will it work with it in the future?
No, Parallel Studio will not work with Express Edition, and we have no announced plan to do in the future.

I think its definetly something worth looking into -- an "express" version of Parrellel Studio would help programmers in becoming more parrellel driven.
The reason why we don't support building projects in parallel is not because we can't, nor because Visual Studio does not respect inter-project dependencies; in fact, it's quite the opposite: Visual Studio does a great job of observing project dependencies; unfortunately, however, our code currently depends on two pre-compiled headers, which are not fully independent; meaning that one may finish before the other is done and destroy the rest of the build process. Why two, you ask? Well, one is for the C++ code, while the other is for the C code.
