    Can't install VS 2011 Developer Preview?


    Ok, so I downloaded the setup and it starts to run but then it has an error saying it couldn't install the prerequisites and this is the error in the log

    Code:
    [12C0:12A4][2011-09-17T09:15:05.816-06:00]: MUX:  ExecuteError: Package (vsbsln_neu_28) failed: Error: 25541 ErrorMessage: Error 25541.Failed to open XML file C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config, system error: -2147024786
    Can anyone help? I don't want to download the other version of Windows 8 with the tools. I don't have a big enough media to install it.

    Do you know if there is a standalone installer? (specially for non-msdn subscriber?) Or is there way to extract just the visual studio 11 installer from the larger .iso?

    Thanks,

    There is a standalone installer. I don't know how to extract it from the large ISO, I just downloaded mine from BetaArchive.

    Why not download it from the official MS site?

    Because they don't have just the VS11 installer, I can't fit the version with VS11 on any of my DVDs or Flash Drives

    That installer seems to be hidden inside one of the bundles inside the iso. I tried looking for it. Strangely, MS will provide it for the msdn subscribers, even though it is a free piece of software.

    Hi there
    Just download the ISO and mount it as a Virtual drive

    Then you can extract anything you like just like a normal DVD.

    Windows 8 has built in Mount ISO as a context command in Windows Explorer.
    Just right click against the ISO in Windows explorer and you'll see a MOUNT option.

    I can't show you the screen since I'm at work and on W7 at the moment which doesn't have this feature.

    ISO Images - Mount or Unmount

    (Note to Mods -- the Mount ISO in W8 is incredibly useful - especially now some iso's have > 4.7 GB so aren't suitable for normal burning DVD software. Perhaps you could make a note of this for users -- It's not a replacement for things like Daemon tools but if you just need to mount an ISO --works wonders. I'm amazed quite a lot of people don't know about this feature.

    Have used on netbooks that don't even HAVE DVD drives).

    Cheers
