Can you please confirm that your PC has not got Beta version of any Visual Studio product e.g. Visual Studio 2012 Express for Desktop (Beta).

This blocker is seen if installation of Windows Phone SDK 8.0 is triggered on a machine having Beta version of any Visual Studio product.

Request you to share the logs with us. You can use the Visual Studio setup log collection utility for getting all the logs. The utility can be installed from - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=12493

Follow the steps mentioned in the page and share vslogs.cab file from %temp% folder after running the utility.
