Visual Studio 11 beta installer on Windows 8 on Bootcamp on a MacBook Air locking up

Just a quick note for anyone that is running this combination and running into the same problem as me – I found that the Visual Studio 11 beta installation would lock up my Macbook Air.

The fix for me was running the available Windows updates. After a reboot the Visual Studio 11 beta installer ran smoothly and all was well. In fact, Windows 8 runs beautifully on a MacBook Air!
