Unexpected error occurred while communicating with Administration Service – When Adding Managed Property


When this error first popped up I thought I was going to have one of those long days troubleshooting SharePoint's guts. 

Looking at the log I found out the managed property I was trying to create already existed. 

Update ManageProperty failed Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Extended.Administration.Common.AdminException: The  managed property  'Location' already exists.

Cmon Microsoft.  This message is a bit misleading.

Installing Visual Studio 2012 RC on Windows 8 RP Running on ThinkPad T510 (4349)

When trying to install Visual Studio the splash screen for the installer would come up with a black screen and never go away.  I gave up trying to get this to work.  Came back to it this weekend and saw Lenovo released another video driver for Windows 8 on August 9.  Installed the new driver, rebooted and Visual Studio installed with no issues.  FINALLY!
