download vs2012 update 1


  • i habe tried to download the complete update with /layout. after 10-15 minutes i get the error ..\packages\vc_librarycore\ can't be found. it i look here there isn't such a file. i have repeated this 4 times un 2 different machines, friday an today monday. i get the same error. what can i do?

    i have also tried to install direct, i get the same error.

    the trick with webinstaller und /layout is quite nice, it's a way to get all files so you can install the software on a machine without internet oder to automate the install für 2-300 machines. i just downloaded the 1.2 gB iso-file for tfs 2012 update 1 sucessfully. i would appreciate it if microsoft would make it possible to do this for visual studio too. in the end i need such a file, /layout makes it possible to get this file, but it is more work. and it doesn't work.

  • I have the same problem.

    Where did you get the complete ISO file?

  • It appears the ISO is available only to MSDN subscribers at this time.

    I have submitted this feedback to the Visual Studio team through Microsoft Connect:

    If you agree, please vote for it.

  • i have tried to download this update on  a couple of machines, it's the same problem. somewhere a read the advice to make the download on a private computer. i tried to do do the download on a company-computer without vs2012, this is not possible, the update 1 with /layout needs vs 2012. i am not going to install vs2012 on my private computer. this is not an option.  i can't quite understand why you need this to use the layout-option.

    rob asked where i got the iso-file. i still haven't got a iso-file for vs 2012 update 1. i was referring to TFS 2012 update 1, as a msnd subscriber you can download this. i haven't seen a iso-file for vs2012 update there yet. is there any?

    i would love to install update 1,  in my opinion the easiest way to achieve this, would be to put the vs2012-update 1-iso-file into msdn. everyone able to use the web-installer with the layout-option without having the cab8-problem actually get's this iso-file.  therefore this iso-file could also appear in msdn.
