UnInstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello;

    Just wondering why the Visual Studio 2015 product takes so long to install and uninstall. Surly as a company who provides corporations globally with this product you'd have a faster solution to add and remove maybe even repair the product ?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Richard,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Usually the VS installation usually takes up about more than 2 hours,

    Please run Fix it tool to fix problems that block programs from being installed or removed.

    About uninstalling VS, try with the Visual Studio Uninstaller to uninstall the Whole VS cleanly, you can run it a couple of times.


    To run install, uninstall or repair faster, please go to Windows Update to see whether there is the update to install, if there is, please install the update first. Since installing visual studio requires your windows updated to the latest. Disable your anti-virus, and run the setup as administrator.
