  • Hi 3D HD Soft,

    I don't check the log by now, but before that I want to make sure that: Did you install VS11 by downloading the ISO or web install? Did you run the installer as Admin? Do you have Developer Preview installed already?

    Sincerely,

  • I dowloaded the ISO. I mounted and also unzipped it. Tried both, none worked. Mounting so far gave me 100% success.

    I do not have VS 11 Preview installed.

  • Did you run the program as administrator and if you downloaded the .iso what did you use to mount it?

  • Hi Ivan, could you please verify the checksums for the VS 11 Ultimate Beta ISO image file that you have on your computer just to make sure that the ISO is not corrupted? You can use a third party tool to do that (eg: HashCheck). Below are the checksums for a uncorrupted VS 11 Ultimate Beta ISO image file.

    File: VS11_BETA_ULT_ENU.iso
    CRC-32: d914b405
    MD4: 7d2d3456d13248fb413e454ce5abcd22
    MD5: c27e20f56fc2c8e1f53744e7705306e5
    SHA-1: 97ae6f60e512780346d222d0c90de92c45e65dc1

    If the checksums do not match, I kindly suggest that you re-download the ISO image file and try again.

  • Hi Ivan, I do not understand your last post regarding vs_ultimatelayout.exe working fine. Could you please explain?

    Secondly, thank you for posting your checksums. It seems they do not match the checksums I posted. You should re-download the ISO image file again and make sure the checksums match so that you do not get the errors that you posted in your first post.

  • My second download of ISO:

    Looks better. :-)

  • vs_ultimatelayout.exe is the suggested method on the VS 11 page.

    3. Download the Product Layout (vs_ultimatelayout.exe):

    • Download a local copy of the DVD layout to your computer. You can run Setup later without contacting the Internet, or you can copy and paste the DVD layout in another location. For most users, we recommended this option instead of the ISO image.
    • On this page, choose the Download button.

  • Hi Ivan, thanks for mentioning the product layout file. It never caught my attention :)

    Have you tried mounting the new ISO file and installing VS 11? Are you getting any errors?
