I have attempted to find an answer to this in the Microsoft forums with no luck so I thought I would see if anyone here has ran into this problem.
I am currently using Visual Studio 2012 Premium edition installed on a Windows 7 x64 machine. For some reason when I attempt to install the .NET MF 4.3 it reports that VS2012 is not installed. Now i have tried removing and reinstalling Visual Studio with no luck I have also attempted to install the Express edition with no luck either. Does anyone happen to know what registry key or file the installer is looking for to prove Visual Studio 2012 is in fact installed.
My concern is that I had previously had VS 2005 and VS 2008 installed (both were removed before installing 2012), and there is something left over that I have missed. I would really like to avoid doing a full format refresh of the computer.
Thanks in advance for your help.
