I installed "Visual Studio 2012 Express Desktop" on my "Windows 8 Pro". The installer succeeded and told me to restart the system. I obeyed.
Now the system hangs somewhere in the bootprocess and my eyes won't stop bleeding while looking at the dancing little dots (aka the "wait" animation).
After 2 resets the automatic recovery triggered and Windows 8 healed itself. Windows 8 booted again, I was able to login. I tried to launch Visual Studio, but some .dll was missing. I repeaired the installation via the installer. The installer succeeded and told me to restart the system. I obeyed, again.
And, again, now my eyes bleed again while looking at the dancing dots.
What is the problem? What is the best way to diagnose this?
Update: Maybe related, after the 2nd restore I get some 'COM surrogate crashed' messages from the picture viewer. And the "remove programs" panel takes ages to load.
Update2: After several cleanups / recovery / reinstall etc: VStudio now works. Boot-hanging might be coincidence and not corelation. I vote for closing this question, might be usefull for others in terms of 'it was asked but can't be answered'.
