Could not install VS2017 RRS feed

  • Hi yf11,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    From your description, like that you only download the VS 2017 installer, not install the VS well.

    In this situation, you can try to remove the existing VS 2017 that install failed before as below:

    1. Go to Control Panel—Programs and Features, if there has ‘Microsoft Visual Studio 2017’, right click it and choose ‘Uninstall’

    2. Try to delete the following installed folders: (you can back up those folders before any modification, in case we need to roll back)

    3. Go to the folder: %ProgramData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio and delete the ‘Packages’ folder and ‘Setup’ folder if there has.

    4. Go to the Visual Studio installation folder (normally under %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio) and delete the folder ‘2017’

    After that, make sure windows update is up-to-date, clean up the %temp% folder and temporarily disable any antivirus software, reboot the computer and re-run the VS 2017 RTM installer as administrator again.
