This volume of this disk does not meet the requirements for this update' any ideas on how to get round this?

That may be the new Mountain Lion "sandbox" protective software kicking in, possibly, because ML "thinks" that App doesn't meet ML's new strict security requirements.   A common phenomena.  If you feel the 3rd party App is really OK, you can override this feature and install the new App by holding down the Command key when you click to install the new App.  That's one possibility for the error message appearing.  If not, another possibility is that that Developer Preview software package requires some previous piece of software be installed prior to downloading this Preview.  You would have to check the Facebbok websiste's Developer Forums for help if this is the case.
Hope this helps
