I’m trying to execute the WPSDK-7.1.1-KB2669191-x86 update for the window phone SDK, but whenever I execute it, it shows nothing, the mouse looks like loading for a bit but nothing happens at first hand,no window pop up, no installation start up.
When running task manager and going to details, I can see the WPSDK-7.1.1-KB2669191-x86’s status is running, but the memory in use is stuck in a single value, yet with no window pop up in order for me to continue the installation I can’t do much, and I can’t erase the file until I end the process at the task manager.
I tried re-downloading yet no success, and also I downloaded the Async-CTP-v3 and it behaves as the SDK update.

Im running Windows 8 Pro.

This is how it looks at device Manager, every time I run the program, it just stack and get lock in memory usage, yet no response at all, tried to run on CMD, Administrator and with compatibilities over W7 and WXP, yet no change was visible.

Later on I was going to try a game, but when I tried to update it, the update.exe behaves as the SDK and Async, shows on taskmanager as running yet stuck in memory usage, so this is not an error found only in microsoft released products.

No idea of what to do. Thx for any help.

Visual Studio 2012 is already out. Try that instead.

Games, on the other hand are different story. You will have to wait for the manufacturer to update it, or forget about it. Most of the software is expected to have various problems with Windows 8 due to the radically different kernel and other changes under the hood.

Just stick with what works for now. Continuous experimentation and trying to force things to work at any cost may lead to damage to the OS and a PC Refresh.

Alternatively, you can try Windows 7 or Vista compatibility mode, but if that fails, you are better off waiting for an update.

Thx for the VS2012 solution,

Still I have for example problem with my Switchable AMD, Intel graphics, which when installing the AMD driver it cause a blank screen then upon restart BSOD, so I found a community supported solution for this but can’t run the installation due to this random behavior, so now I’m living with my Intel chip, quite annoying.

Edit: After triying VS2012 how im suposed to develop for windows phone if I need the 8.0SDK which havent come out yet ?
