Today, the Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 (Visual Studio 2012.1) is available for download. You can get it now via the Visual Studio 2012.1 download page (see "Visual Studio 2012 Update 1" under the "Additional software" section).

For an overview of the main updates included in Visual Studio 2012.1, please visit Soma’s blog. As he mentions in his post, “This [update] isn’t just about bug fixes, though it contains plenty of those (Visual Studio 2012.1 includes more than a 100 fixes to measurably address issues reported through Connect and Windows Error Reporting). This update delivers a wealth of new functionality into Visual Studio 2012, across all of our products.”

In particular, you can find a comprehensive outline of the new functionality available for Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate in the update on the Visual Studio ALM + TFS Blog.

If you encounter a bug or an issue, please report it through the Visual Studio, LightSwitch, and Blend Connect sites. As always, we want to hear your suggestions or feature ideas/improvements so please add your suggestions to UserVoice or vote on other user’s suggestions.

  • Nice update for those of us that develop windows store apps.  There's nothing of great value for me in the role of developing enterprise applications.  What will update 2 focus on?  Can we perhaps get support for recording and playback of Macros?  There are 999 votes to bring back that feature (or is that a hard cap... funky number)

  • Nice

  • I can now say the intellisense across the board (C#, JavaScript, ASP.Net) is not as smooth as VS 2010.  It has pauses, delays, quirkiness, and sometimes just doen't show.  I really hope they focus on fit/finish before trying to stay trendy and add support for touch apps.

  • For update 2 it would be nice to include an option to revert to a full VS2010 theme complete with the original icons, spacing, title bar and so on. While the theme editor is certainly helpful, the icons really just need to go. There are currently 12,529 votes over at uservoice related to this:

    Also there have been 5,166 downloads of this icon patcher:

    And another 4,686 downloads of this one:

    So it looks like people really want this. What do you think guys, can we do this for Update 2?


  • How big is the update in size 0.0mb

  • @Bram: 1.1 MB -->

  • @Bram: I wanted to clarify my earlier post. The 'installer' is 1.1MB (obvious right?) but on my installation (US) the installer indicated it would ultimately use 1 MB. However if you download the install files separately (using the /layout parameter) then the install files themselves consume about 1GB.

  • Is there a way to "graduate" from Small basic to VB free of charge ?  If so, post it on your SB website without the Visual Studio download.  If not, then remove the "graduate" button from SB (supposedly for beginners and kids), and replace it with a "$$ for MS" button, so they are not tempted to hit it.  The kids can avoid the downloads, installs, crashes and the marketing pitches, which only give you guys a bad name.

  • An update for the ugliest garbage ever made, thank you Microsoft



  • My Visual studio intelligence is not working. tell me what I do.
