WTH (What the Heck)! I just upgraded my VS 2012 on August 18, 2012 and got the error that was similar to:
Error : DEP0800 : The required framework "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0\ExtensionSDKs\Microsoft.VCLibs\11.0\.\AppX\Debug\ARM\Microsoft.VCLibs.ARM.Debug.11.appx" failed to install.
Windows cannot install package Microsoft.VCLibs.110.Debug because the package requires architecture ARM, but this computer has architecture x64
But the workaround was discovered by the genius BaoBobKing and posted in the forums! Nice one BaoBobKing! You da best!
I have posted the workaround on https://aka.ms/workaroundVS2012deployment

and mark BaoBobKing’s answer as “helpful”, it helps with his software spirit points.
Seriously, pay up and mark BaoBobKing’s solution as helpful, it doesn’t cost you anything.
