You might hit this error “Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Devenv Element not found“ when you are trying to install Visual Studio 2012.
I have gotten the error when I tried to install Visual Studio 2012 in Windows Server 2012. I then realized that my Windows Update has turned off in Control Panel. I turn on the Windows Update and there was 102 updates to install. The 102 updates was installed and the system rebooted. The Visual Studio 2012 installation was going well after the Windows Update installation.
