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. So we need to choose the correct version of Visual Studio 2012, So I have chosen the Visual Studio 2012 RC to install on my Windows 8. Okay here are the steps:
Step 1: Download the Visual studio 2012 RC and double click on setup.exe. I have selected Ultimate version.
Step 2: Installation started
Step 3: Setup requires 8.95 GB minimum, click agree and Next
Step 4: It will ask for optional features to install, I have selected all
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.
Step 9: Visual studio is loading user settings
Step 10: Yes..Visual Studio is ready to rockz..! Just click the new project and select the language, I have selected C#
Step 11: Choose the Metro Style application and continue your coding..! Okay I will try to post my first Metro Style Application next! 🙂
That’s all guys! Happy programming n metro styling..!
Oh yes..! Finally I have installed Windows 8 release preview with dual boot on my laptop! I have faced several issues while installing Windows 8 on separate partition, but the following issue gave me a very bad experience!
“Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The Partition contains one or more dynamic volumes that are not supported for installation”
I have tried my best to keep my previous Windows 7, but I could not convert dynamic volumes to Basic volumes without deleting them. So I have formatted and installed both operating systems from the scratch! 😦 If you face any problem like this just try this and this! 🙂
Okay, here are some nice screen shots from Windows 8 release preview!
1. Dual boot screen, we can choose either 7 Or 8 within 60 secs
“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..!
