    Apparently all VS is 32 bit according to this link Why is Visual Studio 2015 still a 32-bit application?.

    Regardless you should create restore point on machine prior to trying so you can restore system if necessary.

    I know VS 2013 Community for some reason defaulted to using folder already on system for VS 2012 which makes no sense. And that was with update 5 I believe.


    La vida loca
