Unable to install Visual Studio 2012 in Windows 8

I was trying to install Visual Studio Premium 2012 (VS 2012) in Windows 8 and was getting the error: ' Setup Blocked: Correct the following problems and then run setup again. Click here to see the most common issues and workarounds or here to review the log file.  [XMARK] The computer needs to be restarted before setup can continue. Please restart the computer and run setup again.'

I looked at the log file and saw the following as the last 5 lines:
[0D3C:0698][2012-12-06T11:28:31]: MUX:  Non-applicable packages grouped by Selectable Items:
[0D3C:0698][2012-12-06T11:28:32]: MUX:  User feedback control is Enable because opt-in value is NotDefined
[0D3C:0D34][2012-12-06T11:28:32]: MUX:  View loaded
[0D3C:0D34][2012-12-06T11:28:32]: MUX:  Go to Blocker page.
[0D3C:0D34][2012-12-06T11:28:32]: Detect complete, result: 0x0

I was able to resolve this issue by installing the latests Windows updates and restart the machine. Pretty simple. Go figure that the infolog would actually tell me correctly what to do without the help of the label file.
