you can download vsupdate_KB2707250.exe ( Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 CTP 4 ) as web installer.
Where can I download the same update package as "complete" setup ( and not as web installer setup )?

Hi The PerfectWave,
Thanks for your post.
I've searched on-line and also cannot find that standalone installer either.
If you need a standalone installer. I'm afraid you should wait for Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 to be available or send your user feedback here:
It seems customers can refer to this blog
As "Sheng Jiang" mentioned, use /layout to download the package

@radioman-lt thanks for your torrent!
@Sheng Jiang thanks for your answer!
Yesterday I already use the argument /layout to download the entire standalone installer.

Run the installer from a command prompt with flag: /layout
The /layout flag doesn't support SUSPEND and RESUME for the downloaded files.
I had to download VS2012 Update 2 over and over again because of its 1.8 GB-size took HOURS to download.
Simply just provide an ISO file with its checksum using SHA-1 so that I can download it using whatever download manager I use.
