Installing Visual Studio 11 on Windows 8 w/o Developer Tools RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed Windows 8 from a disk a friend made that did not have the developer tools. Is there any way to install them separately?

  • I understand that. Does that mean there is absolutely no way to install the developer tools separately and I'll have to do a complete reinstall?

    That's right, if you don't have MSN Subscription, you have to download the image.
    It's because those tools are developed to work just for Windows Developer Preview, maybe when they become RTM too will be available in a separate download.
