  • Hi Muhammad Yamani,

    As far as I know, we could install the VS2015 on windows 8 Environment, but if you want to know that whether all plug-ins or project types are supported in this Environment, I'm afraid that it is hard for us to provide a directly answers, for example, certain project types are not supported in windows 8 like the windows 10 UWP projects in VS2015. I think it is also hard for us to know that whether all plug-ins worked well in your Windows 8 Environment. Maybe you could tell us the real plug-ins or project types you want to install or develop.

    Since this forum is to discuss the VS IDE, if you want to know whether you could install SQL Server or IIS or other software in your Environment, I'm afraid that we would discuss this issue with the IIS or the SQL Server experts. I think you could get the specific support forum from the MSDN site.

    Best Regards,
