  • Exactly what release of Windows 8 do you have? Is it the Release Candidate or Release Preview?

    What is the Visual Studio 2012 release you are trying to install? RTM?

    Without answers to the above I cannot be sure, but it sounds like a mismatch between your Win 8 release and the VS 2012 release you are trying to install.

    Bottom line: If you are trying to install VS 2012 RTM, the ONLY Windows 8 that will work is also RTM.
