VS2017 install issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I install some components of my VS2017 RC, I have found that I could install VS2017 pro and VS2017 Enterprise. I have a doubt if I click VS2017 pro install button, does my VS2017 Community could be covered? If it is covered, whether I could recover it?

  • Hi gshallkenlmi,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    For your question, I did a test on my machine, install the VS 2017 Community first and then install the VS 2017 Professional version:

    Test result:

    The VS 2017 RC Community version won't be covered, and it could also run smoothly.

    Note: If you install the Enterprise before the Professional version, the Pro won't install later, because the Enterprise is the highest and most advanced, once it is installed, the lower version couldn't install later.

    Best Regards,
