  • Hi all,

    As you can see from the error message, your version are RTM version which is not supported on Win 8 RP.

    Please read the following blog:

    "Visual Studio 2012 RTM is not supported on pre-release versions of Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012."

    To install Visual Studio 2012 RTM, you will need to install it on Windows 7 SP1, Server 2008 R2 SP1, or install VS2012 RTM on Windows 8 or Server 2012 RTM. If you are an MSDN or TechNet subscriber, you can get Win8 now from the following links:
    •MSDN Subscriber Downloads
    •TechNet Subscriber Downloads

    If you are not an MSDN or TechNet subscriber, you can download a 90-day evaluation of Windows 8 Enterprise to make sure your software or hardware is ready for the Windows 8 launch.

    You may also continue to use pre-release versions of VS2012 on supported pre-release versions of Win8, such as VS2012 RC on the Win8 Release Preview (RP).
