See more: Windows VS2012
I have gleaned that I can't mix RTM and RC or Preview in either direction, so to speak, but apparently VS2012 RC should run on Windows 8 Preview. I have Win8 running in VirtualBox, and when I try and install VS2012 the installer just stops working, with that helpful error message, "VS has stopped working".

Is there some additional prep I need? Has someone got these two running together, on VirtualBox?

Why not use Windows 8 RTM? Windows 8 RTM now available to developers[^]

A little more work now, but continuing to use the Windows 8 RC will probably lead to all sorts of grief down the road.

RTM is a big fat scary download in addition to the VS RTM download, and I am on expensive 3G bandwidth.

Ouch! my condolences - doesn't sound much fun in this day and age, where everyone is expected to have access to unlimited bandwidth ...

Quite common in SA, but I'm boarding with my mom until next week, and she doesn't have adsl. Recently most adsl packages have unlimited bandwidth though, so here's hoping for improvement at my new digs.
