Can't Install Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview on Windows 8 RRS feed


  • Hi Startingapp,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    First, you intended to install Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview. I recommend you to install the latest beta version of Visual Studio 11 Beta.

    According to the error message “Failed get file version” and “Failed get to file attributes”, it seems like the installation files are corrupt. I recommend you download ISO file of Visual Studio 11 Beta:

    Please select VS11_BETA_ULT_ENU.iso.

    Second, please extract ISO file to your hard disk.

    Third, complete or dismiss Windows Updates before installation (but turn on Windows Update service).

    Then, clean up your “%temp%” folder (Start>>Run>>%temp%).

    Next, check if there are any anti-virus or antispyware applications running. Make sure they are turned off during installation.

    Finally, run the setup file with Administrator privileges: Right-click the installer > Run as administrator.

    If the problem still exists after these steps, could you please collect the fresh logs for me?

    Note: Please attach the link of this post in the mail.

    If you have any other problems, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards,
