Cannot install Visual Studio Community 2015

    Question

  • I'm trying to install Visual Studio Community 2015 on a newly formatted Windows 10 pc. From the web installer I get the following errors:
    Setup Engine : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual Studio Preparation : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Pre-Clean Tool : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x86) - 12.0.21005 : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) - 12.0.21005 : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x86) - 11.0.60610 : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x64) - 11.0.60610 : The system cannot find the file specified.
    Microsoft Visual Studio Services Hub : The system cannot find the file specified.

    I also tried the ISO installer but it doesn't even start.
    Before formatting it was working fine on the same pc.

  • I just got it to work. What I did:
    1. Disabled antivirus/windows defender.
    2. Cleared %TEMP% folder.
    3. Extracted the iso instead of mounting it, and then ran the exe.
