“The .Net Framework installed on this machine does not meet the minimum required version: 4.5.50709” Visual Studio 2012

I wanted to develop a metro style application using Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8 and I have already installed the Windows 8 release preview on my laptop! (Dual boot with Windows 7, you can see some screen shots here :)). I was trying to install the Visual Studio 2012 express edition and I have got the following error message! 🙂

I have spent few minutes on the web and found out there are some versions conflict, so we have to choose the correct version with operating system!  ( The latest Visual Studio RTM versions won’t install on Windows 8 Release Preview)

So I need to install either one of the RC versions of Visual Studio OR the 90 day evaluation version of Windows 8 version! I will choose the Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 RC for Windows 8!

That’s all guys! Happy Installing..!

“Input string was not in a correct format.” while installing SQL Server 2008

I have re-installed Windows 7 and other applications on my laptop this morning. While installing the SQL Server 2008, I have got the following error message.

I have selected all  the features including SSRS and SSIS, and the event log was showing like below.

After spending few minutes on the web, I realized the problem with my performance counters and I wanted to rebuild it on my laptop. Here is the steps to rebuild the performance counters!

Step 1: Open the command prompt (Make sure to Run As Administrator otherwise you will get an error :))

Step 2: Enter the “LODCTR /R” command and hit Enter key

You will be getting the following success message!

That’s all, try to install the SQL Server again, No problem at all!

Thanks /R
