Visual Studio Installer CleanUp

Please follow the cleanup steps and retry your VS install:

  • See if you have this file on your machine: “%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer\resources\app\layout\InstallCleanup.exe”
  • If so, please launch it from an admin command prompt with a -full param: InstallCleanup.exe -full
  • If not, please manually delete the “%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer” folder
  • Relaunch the newly downloaded vs_enterprise.exe (or vs_professional.exe or vs_community.exe…)
  • Allow the first step to install the installer
  • Once the installer comes up and you can see workload choices (.net desktop and the like), close it
  • Go launch the same InstallCleanup.exe to clean up old build of VS
  • Then relaunch vs_enterprise.exe and install VS
