Visual Studio 2017 offline installer size RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I followed the tutorial in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/create-an-offline-installation-of-visual-studio to download visual studio 2017 community offline installer files. I would like to know the exact size (or any forecast) of the offline installer file. This is important because I have a limited bandwidth. 

    Additionally is there any way to resume the download in case I choose to quit the installation process by closing the command line window

    Thank You

  • Hi Madhav1996,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    You could see my side about download the VS 2017 Enterprise (US language version) offline installer size, about more than 20GB:

    >>is there any way to resume the download in case I choose to quit the installation process by closing the command line window

    If you close the downloading window, there is no way to recover it, even if you start a new /layout command, it will start from the beginning to download files.

  • I'm in the Sydney so it goes without saying my internet connection is really slow!

    I've been downloading the full offline en-us VS 2017 Pro layout for about 30 hours now, and I just hit 22.8 Gb. It would be great if the VS Team put a little "linux like" progress bar or % completed so you had some idea of how long there still was to go on the overall download.

    Will post again once it has finished. Was hoping it would be finished tonight.....
