Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8

Last Modified: 2012-10-08
I am getting an error while trying to install VS2012 on Windows 8 release preview build 8400.

VS2012 install says that .Net version is not equal to or above 4.5.50709. I download the new versions of .Net and it says that they cannot install because .Net is already bundled into Windows 8.

Any help?

I have tried "Turn Windows Features ON/OFF" to uninstall and reinstall and nothing is working.
