  • Hello,

    You might ask in the Visual Studio Setup and Installation forum.

    However, see this:

    https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/775416/vscontentinstaller-is-misssing-in-visual-studio-net-express-for-c-2012

    Seems like it's "by design" in the free versions of Visual Studio.

    If you have an MSDN subscription then VS 2012 is still downloadable.
