Can you verify you are running VS as "administrator"

Also check the permissions on the schema folder
It is also said to be a known issue when using WS2012 with Windows 8 and IIS 8

Do you have SP1 for VS 2010 installed  ?

Commented:
I did not specifically set up SP1. It is from the original VS 2010 setup.
The workarounds I heard would be
1. updating the SP
2. Changing the version of VS you are working with.

I am assuming upgrading the SP is easier.

Can you please tell me what the problem is for the above and you can see it is already SP1 above?

Issue 1
Symptoms

When you try to publish a website or a Web application to http://localhost by using Internet Information Services (IIS) settings in Visual Studio 2010 on a computer that is running Windows 8, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
There was an error reading IIS configuration schema from "C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\schema\"

Note This problem does not occur when you publish the website or the Web application without using IIS settings.

Workaround

To work around this issue, use one of the following methods:

    Use Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 to publish the website or the Web application.
    Use the latest Windows Azure SDK for .NET (Visual Studio 2010 SP1) to publish the website or the Web application. Windows Azure SDK for .NET provides an updated Web publish experience, and will not cause this problem. The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

Many thank Becraig. If I use VS 2012, must I set up "Windows Azure SDK for .NET"? I see this
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=254269

is having the package for VS 2010. Can I apply it to VS 2012?
Here you go with the link for the SDK for both vs2010 and vs2012
