Windows 8, Visual Studio 2012 (30 day eval) and Xamarin

Hi There. I am having problems installing Xamarin for Visual Studio 2012. I am running windows 8 64bit with Visual Studio 2012 (30 day Eval copy). When I run the XamarinInstaller.exe file then it installs everything. There are no errors. I can open Xamarin Studio perfectly. When I open visual studio and try to create a new Android project, there are no templates for Android or IOS. When I go to the c:\ in explorer, I see that there are a bunch of new folders (VS2012_ROOT_FOLDER, VS2012_PROJECTTEMPLATES_DIR, VS2012_ITEMTEMPLATES_DIR, VS2012_EXTENSIONS_DIR, VS2010_PROJECTTEMPLATES_DIR and VS2010_ITEMTEMPLATES_DIR) put there by the xamarin installer. What am I doing wrong?

    This appears to be similar to this thread; this answer might be relevant:

    The folders in root are a created by WiX...if the corresponding version of VS is not installed
