I have installed Visual Studio 11 Beta on Windows 8 Consumer Preview and I've encountered some serious problems.
The problem is described in this StackOverflow post:

Also have you checked the xml log yet?

07 Mart 2012 Çarşamba 16:28No those solutions do not work. Although I'm not going to reinstall everything for the nth time, no. I want to remind you: this is a clean install of both Windows 8 CP and Visual Studio 2011 Beta. It should work, right? Has MSFT tested this config?
07 Mart 2012 Çarşamba 16:29No I have not "checked the xml log" yet. What is there to "check"? If you intend to help, please provide more specific instructions.

Hi jhaakana, could you please show us the contents of the ActivityLog.xml file, or if it contains a lot of text, please upload it to SkyDrive and post back the link here. You can obtain the file from this folder: "C:\Users\Jaakko\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\".
Beside that, could you please try deleting the "11.0" folder from the path "C:\Users\Jaakko\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\"? Make sure VS 11 is closed before deleting the folder, and after deleting it, please launch VS 11 and see if you still get the error, thanks.

I tried deleting the "11.0". It did not help.
The log is here:

Hi jhaakana, please go to the Start screen and search for the "Visual Studio Command Prompt (2011)" shortcut. Please make sure you run it as an Administrator. You can do that by right-clicking it and then select "Run as Administrator" at the bottom bar which pops up once you right-click it.
Once you are in the command prompt, please try the following commands and see if it helps you get rid of the error.
- devenv /ResetSettings
- devenv /setup
- devenv /InstallVSTemplates
- devenv /safemode
If the above still does not work, please repair VS 11 via Control Panel > Uninstall Programs > Select VS 11 > Click Uninstall/Change and then repair.

I tried all the command line commands and repair of VS11. No change.
Look, I respect your help, but are you just suggesting random commands that might help? Did you analyze the log?
If you really want to help, go ahead and replicate my steps and you will probably reproduce it quite easily. I did not take any extra steps, just installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview and immediately Visual Studio 11 Beta.
It would be useful to know if anyone has been successful in installing Visual Studio 11 Beta on Windows 8 Consumer Preview? What was the exact setup? Before I know that, I'm not reinstalling (done that at least 5 times already on clean VMs).

Hi jhaakana, yes, I have analyzed the log, and there is no harm trying those devenv switches as it may fix something that we cannot physically see.
What is the OS edition that you installed VM Player on? I would like to know so that I can get myself into the same environment as you. I have not encountered any issues with a clean install of Windows 8 and installing VS 11 Beta after that, but I did not do that in VM player, so I guess that could be the main difference here.

OS is Windows 8 Consumer Preview (x86). I'm running it on VMWare Player 4.0.2 build-591240 on Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit). VS is Visual Studio 11 Beta Professional.
I will probably try one more time with 64-bit Windows 8 and VS Ultimate.
08 Mart 2012 Perşembe 21:22Everything seems to work properly on a real PC (not VMWare). Conclusion: Windows 8 Consumer Preview + new Visual Studio are incompatible with VMWare Player!
