Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate ISO download and offline installation: troubleshooting of “incorrect function” problem

Visual Studio 2013 was released, with quite a few exciting features. If you wish to get the offline iso installer, click below links (official iso from Microsoft) to download.

However, even if you downloaded the ISO, and if you mount the image and run it from the virtual CD/DVD, you might get below error: “vs_ultimate.exe Incorrect function.”, as shown below:


A trivial solution to troubleshoot this is:

  • Mount the iso with any virtual cd software
  • Copy the mounted content to a local folder, e.g. C:\temp\vs2013\
  • Run “vs_ultimate.exe” from the local folder

That is it. Good luck!

Expression Blend 4: cannot see/switch to design view

If you are using Visual Studio 2012 to create a WPF application, and open it in Micosoft Blend 4, it is likely that you can only see the XAML file, but cannot switch to design view.


To solve this, in Visual Studio 2012, change the default .Net Framework from 4.5 to 4.0:

Reopen the solution in Blend 4, it works!
