Blend for Visual Studio 2012 - Not working ???

Recently I installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 which comes with the .NET framework 4.5. Unlike the previous versions in VS, the new one comes with Blend inbuilt. After the installation, VS 2012 worked perfectly but when I tried to run Blend for Visual Studio 2012, it gave me the following error message. 

I followed the link displayed in the message to install the Blend + SketchFlow Preview for Visual Studio 2012. 
Then I downloaded the preview from the Microsoft Expression website which was 102.3MB. 
I followed the installation steps as shown in the images below.




Even after installing the preview, Blend for Visual Studio 2012 gave the same error message. Instead of that, the newly installed Blend + SketchFlow Preview for Visual Studio 2012 worked without any issue.

The new features of Blend are yet to be tried out. If anybody already gave it a try, feel free to give your comments.

Once you try to run Blend after installing VS 2012, you'll get an error message. The error message contains the link to follow.

Blend full version is only working on windows 8[especially for metro style application development]. If you really want to use it on windows 7, you can try out preview version that’s why it doesn’t make any issue.
