Visual Studio Installer Crashes on Windows 8.1 RTM

The entire story of the Windows 8.1 RTM install on a MacBook Air will come another day, but I was having a really odd problem with not being able to install Visual Studio 2012 or 2013 without it immediately crashing.

Some others online were having issues, and it comes down to, get this, the display adapter driver.  Once I uninstalled it, the installer worked just fine (well, it’s running right now, anyway).  Hopefully, I can reinstall the display adapter after the install.

Update: unfortunately, updating the display adapter causes Visual Studio itself to crash on launch.  Maybe it will be resolved when it goes RTM, but for now, Microsoft Basic Display Adapter it is.
