Run Windows Update and make sure that you have installed all critical updates and then reboot. After this, try reinstalling again.
I have all of the VS 2010 Express products installed on my Win 8 PC.

See the installation proccess, check what the software need to be installed as the requirement and not successfully installed. Install that software manualy.

I installed the VS 2012 Express products as well without any issues, except for VS 2012 Express for Windows Phone, as this is a 64-bit only product and I am on a 32-bit machine.
Do you have Visual Studio 2012 Professional or above installed?
