    Microsoft roll out one more update to Visual Studio 2012


    A month ago, it looked like Microsoft's Visual Studio team had decided that the third update to Visual Studio 2012 would be the last before the company moved on to the next version of the suite, known officially as Visual Studio 2013.

    But now it appears Microsoft has rethought that plan and is going to deliver a fourth update to VS 2012.

    On July 30, Microsoft made available for download Release Candidate (RC) 1 for VS 2012 Update 4. The fourth update is primarily a bunch of Team Foundation Server improvements, plus a few minor bug fixes. Microsoft officials aren't saying when to expect the company to roll out the final version of Update 4.

    Hi there
    Update 3 works fine. It's quite a big one though if you hadn't applied updates 1 and 2 -- all are incorporated into update 3 if you haven't applied the other updates.

    Updated a while ago. Took around 20 mins !!! on a decent system (8GB with i5 processor and FAST HDD (not SSD unfortunately).


    Cheers

    Is MS going to yearly installments of Visual Studio now? That is going to be painful. I have to find a way to get away from MS products. Their decisions the last couple of years are killing me.
