Good news for me, and fellow techies that are fond Microsoft products. Windows 8 Release Preview (release candidate) and Visual Studio 2012RC are now released, and I couldnt be more excited!
Remember that you need to install the Win8 Release Preview to install VS12RC if you are planning n using win8, but VS2012RC does work with Windows 7 🙂
If you get this error:
“The .NET Framework installed on this machine does not meet the minimum required version: 4.5.50501.”
Then you should go to settings –> PC info –> Windows edition and check which version you have. You need the win8 release candidate, it wont work on the earlier release, the consumer preview.
If you were to try to update to .Net 4.5 you probably got this error:
“Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is already a part of this operating system. You do not need to install the .NET Framework 4.5 redistributable.”
