Visual Studio 2015 - Download Update 3 without Visual Studio


  • All of the links that I have found allow you to download Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition with Update 3; I only want Update 3.

    Is there a link to download Update 3 for Visual Studio Community Edition without downloading Visual Studio itself?

  • Hi Fidence,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    If you want to download the VS 2015 update 3, please have a look at this: VS 2015 update 3 release note and you will find the download link: Visual Studio Update 3

    Or you can also go to VS download center and expand Visual Studio 2015, there is an item which is Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 and you can choose download the ISO file or web installer like the following:
