SQL Server 2014 side by side setup failed

Hello SQL Server data platform professionals,

I've been worked as a Transact-SQL developer and take care of SQL Server database maintenance and BI development especially of SQL Server Reporting Services and OLAP cubes in SSAS for long time.
With the new version of SQL Server release, SQL Server 2014 CTP1 I get excited and impatient to try and learn the new enhancements and improvements in SQL Server for database administrators and SQL developers as well a BI developers.

If you also want to download and try latest SQL Server release, SQL Server 2014 CTP1 please refer to Free Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Download

Unfortunately side by side installation of SQL Server 2014 CTP1 with previous versions of SQL Server is not supported at this step yet.

The setup rules check prepared a report titled Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Community Technology Preview 1 - System Configuration Check Report containing the following failed points on my configuration:

Checks whether there is an existing SQL Product other than SQL14 CTP1 installed.
A SQL product other than SQL Server 2014 CTP1 is detected. You cannot install this release until the existing instances of SQL products are uninstalled.

And an other problem occured during Visual Studio installation check rule:

Block SQL14 CTP1 installation when versions of Visual Studio that install SQL Server 2012 client libraries are present on the machine.
Installation blocked due to detection of versions of Visual Studio that install SQL Server 2012 client libraries. SQL14 CTP1 is prerelease software and should be installed only on a clean machine.

I think I have to wait at least a few days more to test the new SQL Server 2014 features and enhancements for database professionals.
