i’ve been trying to set up the title’s combo with no success so far. Everything works real smooth until trying to fire up Visual Studio’s installer. I get the gray “Visual Studio 11 Beta”-splash screen and then FAIL with:
“Stopped working”, i’m sad. There are two rows in Event Viewer’s Application Log related to this:
1) Error from .NET Runtime

I believe that the latter one includes the key to this problem – namely “VBoxDispD3D-x86.dll”, which is the Direct 3D -driver used by VirtualBox. I’ll be working into that direction – maybe there’s something there, maybe not. We’ll see…
If anyone’s had any success making this work, i’d be really happy to hear about it!
Most humble thanks to JP Gervasoni for commenting! Problem’s gone and the fix was quite obvious: Simply uninstall VirtualBox’s Guest Additions from guest-OS and enjoy VS11 on W8CP!
