Yes, install it as administrator.
If your copy of Windows 8 is cracked or activated illegitimately then you'll get this error.

If for whatever reason you don't want to / can't get a legitimate copy, then deactivating the crack to go back to the trial period, acquiring the license then re-activating it should fix this issue.

Thnaks for your kind reply,

Please tell me how i can resolve it??

I am not getting what do you mean?

Is your Windows 8 release candidate, or last available one?
Was it legally activated, or some sort of activation cheating was used?
nehas1jan 15-Jan-13 7:48am    
No sir,

A paid for this and i purchased this from one of my vendor.

Unless noone else provide you a clue,

I would try following steps:

1. create another temporary user account on your windows 8.
Install a fresh copy o VS 2012 (or reinstall existing one)
Try to do the same steps, hopefully it will fix the issue on your PC.
