  1. Visual Studio Installer

    I noticed this after clicked Visual Studio Installer on screen that is taking forever. Is that normal for this " fetching your files " So far already have 1.67 MB downloading of 67.25 MB. Is there another way to install quicker than this. More likely will see this a whole day or more to finish downloading this. Let me know about this.

    If you start uninstalling bits and pieces then some parts of the program, or older programs, may fail to work properly. Did you select all these so called extras or were they installed automatically. If the latter then you may need them?

    "In Visual Studio 2015, Visual C++ is not installed by default. When installing, be sure to choose Custom installation and then choose the C++ components you require. Or, if Visual Studio is already installed, choose File | New | Project | C++ and you will
    be prompted to install the necessary components."

    There is no way VS only needs to download 68MB. Are you sure you didn't mean GB? Unless it's just downloading the file/package list. But that should not take long.

    If you got to the window where you select components to install and choose everything, then the installation can easily take a whole day. It's 120GB and beyond in size and most developers don't need all that stuff. *Smile

  5. Thanks for your reply and it's done now. And the little box pop up on the screen about Visual Studio Installer. Look below:


    Visual Studio Enterprise 2017

    Visual Studio Community 2017

    Visual Studio Professional 2017

    Pick the second one to install Visual Studio Community 2017 or the first one with Visual Studio Enterprise 2017? I don't want to purchase any of them just want to get the freeware program. I know with the last one is to purchase the professional edition of Visual Studio Professional 2017.

    Let me know about this.

    Thank you,

  6. You want to select Community Edition, that is the free one. Then in next screen you need to carefully pick the right tools you need. I would start with only the C# packages if you want to develop for Windows only. You can always add more packages later.

  7. I just tried the installer, it is indeed very slow to download the initial files.

    So what type of development do you want to make/learn? I can help select the correct packages. You don't need everything installed, as it will take a day to install. *Smile

  10. Really -- I don't need to run any program of Visual Studio. The reason why I wrote this here because one of the application nothing to do with Microsoft that I click the exe and ask me for the code of Visual Studio 2008. That is why I am not quite understand about this. I think that I have to contact the person who wrote his application about need the code for this.

    Anyway thank you for your help with me here.
