How to prevent VS2015 (Update 1) Installer from installing Update 2 automatically?


  • Good morning,

    we are currently starting to switch our VS integrated tooling (extensions / work item controls etc) to VS2015 but we are targeting Update 1 only, not the recently released Update 2 (corporate IT needs to approval isn't available yet).

    Anyway, one strange, unexpected behaviour we came across is that the offline update (U1) installer and full VS2015 Update 1 iso installations all automatically install Update 2.. so I was wondering whether there's any switch / config / policy we can set to prevent the automatic 'update-to-most-recent-version' behaviour of these update/insallers?

    Thanks and best regards,
