I am having installation issues with VS11 Express
I have Win8CP installed in a Virtual Box machine. This machine has IO APIC, absolute pointing, PAE/NX, VT-x/AMD-V, and nested paging enabled. The display is set for 256M with 3D and 2D acceleration enabled. I have 30G of free hard drive space. The only questionable issue, and that is above the minimum suggestion, is the 1726M base memory.
When I try to install either the Express or Professional version using the web installer (with many variations of RUN AS ADMIN used) it displays the splash screen and blows when switching to the actual program to begin installation. Any ideas?

Sorry to hear that you are having issues installing VS11 Express. Can you please follow the steps (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/e897fbea-a585-40c7-a5a6-2738269dc41d) to collect your logs. Please send these to aaronru(@)microsoft_dot_com.
No help with the ISO. I even enabled Admin and tried to install under that login with no fix.
That failed also. I downloaded the ISO, mounted it, and ran the SETUP program as administrator. I have tried running in Win7 Compatibility mode also. Are there any ideas for getting this installed?
I am now trying a download of the Pro 2011 ISO to see if that helps. Other than that I am out of ideas.
