    Hi thecodingguru,

    As BobbyZA said, there are may reasons will result this problem. Please provide the information that BobbyZA requested. And then please try with following steps to troubleshoot this problem.

    1. Open Visual Studio with Administrator.
    2. Run Visual Studio in safe mode with "Devenv.exe /SafeMode" to prevents all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution.
    3. Close all third part software, such as antivirus.
    4. Please check the ActiveLog.xml under the path of %AppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0. This file will log all operations when you operate Visual Studio.

    If still has this issue and don't find any information in ActiveLog.xml, please use http://aka.ms/vscollect  to gather the VS and .Net Frameowrk installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.cab from %temp% folder. Please upload the file to Onedrive and share the link here.

  • Hi thecodingguru,

    Could be many reasons, you would need to give more info on the version you are trying to install, your PC configuration (operating system, memory, 32/64 bit, etc.)

    Were no errors reported at installation?

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Hope that works, otherwise let us know more detail...
