About Windows Installer, the .NET Framework, and Visual Studio.
A few months ago we introduced a new method of delivering updates to Visual Studio 2012. Today we published updates in the same manner for Visual Studio 2012 Release Candidates.
You can download the July 2012 update (KB2703187) for VS2012 RC from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=257044. More information about this update is available at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2703187.
As with Visual Studio 11 Beta, you will also be notified via Extension Manager. We did, however, make a change for RC to check for updates periodically. This will improve the end-to-end experience for VS updates.
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback. Should you have any problems installing the July 2012 Update for Visual Studio 2012 on RC (v11.0.50522.1) please download and run our log collection utility and visit our forum or file a bug on Microsoft Connect.
Button "Update" in Extensions windows as well ad more info and website link don't respond to clicks... every other update works.
@Aleksandar, can you post a screenshot?
Installer doesn't work through a firewall that requires a username and password. An offline installer would be handy for situtations like this.
Unable to Install Updates. When Clicked updater, Asks to Close Visual Studio to prevent Restarting. When I close Visual Studio and clicked for installation, few seconds later update failed.

No luck installing behind a firewall requiring authentication - "Unable to locate package source"
Installer is unable to download dependencies via corporate proxy which requires explicit login. Can we have an offline version please?
You can vote for this Connect feedback item that encounters the same problem when attempting to download content for installation with an authentication prompt behind a proxy server/firewall:
The current status for the item is "Deferred".
@vs2010junkie, this is actually already fixed for RTM. As long as your proxy settings in your Internet Settings / Internet Explore connection settings work for your authenticating proxy, they will work for both VS Setup and Servicing bundles.
html editor are still not worked well after july update. suppose when you write html and write class on element and press enter all class gone.
Install crashes on Win7 x64.
@kris, please file a bug on Connect or post in one of the Web Development-related forums. The links to either of these are at the bottom of my post.
@Azarien, did you run the log collection utility and file a Connect bug (links at the bottom of my post)?
I am not able to install this update. It fails with an error "RC Updates does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer". It happened after I installed Office 2013 preview.
