        • Note for RC users:  If you have an edition of Visual Studio 2012 RC installed, you can upgrade it to the release version. Before you upgrade, check the release notes for steps that might be required before you install the release version. Note: Cross-edition upgrades are not supported—for example, an upgrade from Visual Studio Premium 2012 RC to the release version of Visual Studio Ultimate 2012 is not supported, but an upgrade from Visual Studio Premium 2012 RC to the release version of Visual Studio Premium 2012 is supported.

          Choose one of the following options:
          • Download the Web Installer (vs_ultimate.exe):
            • On this page, choose the Download button.
              • To install the software now, choose the Run button.
              • To install the software later, choose the Save button.
          • Download the Product Layout (vs_ultimatelayout.exe):
            • Download a local copy of the DVD layout to your computer. You can run Setup later without contacting the Internet, or you can copy and paste the DVD layout in another location. For most users, we recommended this option instead of the ISO image.
            • On this page, choose the Download button.
              • To download the product layout now, choose the Run button.
              • To download a utility so that you can download the product layout later, choose the Save button.
          • Download a DVD5 ISO image (VS2012_ULT_ENU.iso):
            • If you have a download manager that can handle a large file, you can download the ISO image directly.
            • To download the image so that you can burn a DVD, choose the Save button.
            • The CRC and SHA1 hash values of your downloaded ISO image should match these:
              • CRC: 9858E733
              • SHA-1: BA9DBBA6E333F0C703145DECB2900FE02E1A9E96
