Minor Update for Visual Studio 2012 RC Released

  • submit to reddit

Setup & Install by Heath Stewart - New Revision of the July 2012 Update for Visual Studio 2012 RC

We have released a new revision of the July 2012 Update for VS2012 RC. This update replaces – or supersedes – the previous update, which means the download link is the same. We have retained the previous packages that VSUpdate installs – or chains – to support customers who may still require source packages when repairing Visual Studio 2012 RC or uninstalling VSUpdate RC.

We have also updated the previous KB2703187 article with the changes made in this re-release.

Should you have any problems installing the new revision 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.

But didn’t you just release the July 2012 Update?

Yes, but while we have been testing our new quarterly updates internally and have already released VSUpdate for VS2012 Beta and RC, we wanted to gather as much feedback from our customers as possible. Shipping the first version was planned well in advanced and was already in production when we started planning for this re-release, and we realized this is a good opportunity to test the production systems, the toast notification, and gather feedback.


I'm looking forward to this capability in VS2012, where VS product updates are baked into VS. Means we'll hopefully be seeing a faster cadence of releases and updates?
