  • You need to be specific about WHICH Visual Studio 2012 and WHICH Windows 8 you are using.

    The message you see typically appears when trying to install the RTM Visual Studio 2012 on a pre-release Windows 8 (CP, RC or RP). This cannot work because the .NET Framework 4.5 embedded in pre-release Windows 8 versions is incompatible with VS 2012 RTM.

    Bottom line: Visual Studio 2012 RTM will NOT install on any pre-release Windows 8. You must have the RTM Windows 8.

    If the above does not apply to you, please elaborate and provide download links to the products in question.
