  • Ok, nevermind, now my visual studio 2008 install seems to be getting the files.

  • Hey Guys,

    great work. I'm wondering about a new version of the InteropForms toolkit. Current version is 2.1 which only supports VS2008 + VS2010 (have a look at www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx). When can we expect an update? Can we even expect one?

  • Great job. But I wonder why VS doesn't include (Resharper) or something similar which enhances the code and gives the developer great tips and ways to some code blocks in a different and better way.

  • I dont wanna use windows outlook how i should switch it off

    pls help me

  • I searched the missing file WinLibJS_CORE.msi in my machie and i found it in C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{89B4532E-19CE-4FA9-9692-10BFD5A38532}v1.0.8514.0\packages\WinLibJS_CORE so I paste the full path including the file name and I could continue the installation.  I have installed VS 2012 Ultimate Edition.  I found the next link with that file: www.mmnt.net/.../WinLibJS_CORE

  • Hey @Israel,

    Thanks for sharing the log and a possible solution.

    I'll investigate this issue and get back to you..

  • Hello, experts. I have a question. If I create a simple free WinRT Metro program using vs2012 express -- not for windows store(!), but for distribution only from my website, then I need to obtain a free developer license which must be renewed every 30 days using live internet connection for deployment, after that pay 100$ for the dev subscription, push it through Windows Store, or the tricky "domain" stuff, and only then it will be available for my users through my website?? Am I right?? Explain me in several words, easily, is there a simpler way to distribute my free metro apps using my free website, please!!!

  • We would be excited if you fixed the biggest bug in VS 2012. The insane "design".

    Seems whoever decided to destroy Microsoft from inside is still in charge.

  • Connecting to the other prayers below - prodive a direct link, the update is freezing when downloading packages form internet

  • Download vs 2012 update 2 as an ISO

    download.microsoft.com/.../VS2012.2.iso

  • Anyone getting Jim's error of a missing "packages\WinLibJS_CORE\WinLibJS_CORE.msi" can fix it by searching his computer for the file "WinLibJS_CORE.msi" using Windows Search and linking to it in the Visual Studio installer.

    This should solve all your problems and allow you to resume your update.

  • If at the end of install you get "Visual Studio Extensions for Windows Library for JavaScript Element Not Found", install this:

    www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx

  • If MS wants millions of developer to take them seriously they are going to have to get these updates right... I'm trying to download updates then it tells me that it can't find it on my drive, and it can't find it on the internet... Seriously??? I'm still getting the same error as what Jim got on the 10th of April, it is now the 21st of May... Shocking

  • my dream is..

    compiler visual c# for com

    like delphi

    without net

    please..
