I’m currently encountering issues with installing VS2015RC on some VMs that I have on hand (W2K12 upgraded to W2K12R2), as TFS XAML builds are not able to succeed without the presence of VS2015RC on them. Symptoms of the errors I encounter include:
- Access Denied on various components during the installation
- Errors logged in installation log file

Managed to manually install the offending patch, but even after that, the installation still fails. (Thanks @sihuiwsh)
Apparently others have also encountered this problem, will keep an eye out and update here if a solution is found.(https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/64baed8c-b00c-40d5-b19a-99b26a11516e/visual-c-redistributable-for-visual-studio-2015-rc-fails-on-windows-server-2012?forum=vssetup&prof=required)
