Install Visual Studio 2012 on Mac (Boot Camp)

After struggling for almost a week to install Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8, via Boot Camp, I finally found the reason why my computer froze whenever I tried to install Visual Studio.

Here are the steps you should do:

  1. Update Windows 8. You have to install ALL the latest updates.
  2. Install Visual Studio 2012.

This way your installation should go smooth. If you have any questions, please leave a comment.



  1. How is it going now? Have you tried MVC 4.5 with a SQL Server database, and uploaded it to a hosting site?
    I got it to run fine on my BootCamp Mac, but it doesn’t run on the hosting site.
    Is this related to if coming from a Mac?
    My Visual Studio 2010 MVC 3 websites with a SQL Server database (on a BootCamp Mac on Vista) runs fine on the hosting site.
