  • Hi Ershad,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    You could update your offline installer:

    • To update a Visual Studio instance that you installed from an offline installation folder, run the Visual Studio Installer, and then click Update.
    • To refresh your offline installation folder so that it includes the latest updates, run the --layout command again. Make sure to point to the same folder that you used before; this way, only those components that have been updated since you last ran --layout will be downloaded.

    If you want to update your offline installation, run the --layout command again. Make sure to point to the same folder that you used before; this way, only those components that have been updated since you last ran --layout will be downloaded.

    Please refer to here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/install/create-an-offline-installation-of-visual-studio

    Best regards,

  • Hi Joyce,

    thanks for your hint. As far as I understand, the layout download merges all new updates since the last incremental download to the master layout. Unfortunetly all unnecessary packages are not purged after download process. Is there any way to clean up all obsolete packages?

    Thanks in advance
