I want to create a Metro style application using C# on Windows 8, I have already installed Windows 8 release preview on my laptop. You can see some screen shots here. Now I need to install the Visual Studio 2012 and I tried to install the express version and I have got this error (version conflict)! The reason is, the latest Visual Studio RTM versions won’t install on Windows 8 Release Preview.

Step 5: After clicking Install then a window will be opened. That will show the acquiring and applying process..!
Step 6: Wait for few minutes to complete these processes
Step 7: Yes, setup completed successfully and click the LAUNCH button
Step 8: After few minutes below window will ask you to choose the default environment setting and I have chosen the general development setting. Click Start Visual Studio button.
