“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..!
