visual studio 2012 Express setup Blocked

    Question

  • I'm installing Visual Studio 2012 Express on Windows 8 Release Preview Build 8400 (64 bit), I'm getting following error

    The .Net Framework installed on this machine does not meet the minimum required version: 4.5.50709.

    So I downloaded Framework 4.5, but it says that My OS already have it installed. :(

  • This still doesn't help me. I'm trying to install Visual Studio but can't because this isn't clear.

    Suggesting I install the rtm version won't help because I shouldn't need to dig for that.

  • Can you please explain what isn't clear? It would help if you would provide more details about what exactly you are trying to do and what problems you are running into.

    What version of Visual Studio are you trying to install? On which version of Windows 8 are you trying to install it? What exactly is the error that you get when you try to do so?

    As Dave Smits suggested, the Visual Studio 2012 version and the Windows 8 version need to match. You can install Visual Studio 2012 RTM only on Windows 8 RTM. If you have Windows 8 Release Preview then you must install Visual Studio 2012 RC (or better: upgrade to Windows 8 RTM).

  • I just removed Windows 8 Release Preview, Installed Windows 8 RTM (90 Days Trial) & Installed Visual studio without any problems.

    Win8Confused I think the reply of Rob Caplan is very clear. Just upgrade to Windows 8 RTM.

  • Yes, I understand to install vs 2012, I need Win8 RTM.  my concern is that there is no clear upgrade path from RTM to final release of Win8.
