Cannot start VS2015 Update 3 installer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running into a problem. Windows 10 x64, VS2015 Update 2 installed.

    Tried running both the web installer and ISO installer for Update 3 and all that happens is an extraction progress dialog and then nothing. I don't see any related tasks in taskmgr either that indicate something is happening. Tried restarting, no luck.

  • Hi subkamran,

    Have you tried to update your Visual Studio on this way:

    Programs and Features -> Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2015 -> Select it and then Change -> wait couple of seconds -> Modify -> And in the dialog first item that you will see it is Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 select it and select other items that you want to update -> Update

    Hope this was helpful for you...

    Best regards!

  • I'm having the same issue.  I don't show Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2015 in Programs and Features.

    I show Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2015 but the Change never went to Modify ...

    There is a similar question to yours, it may help you. 

    Please follow Sara's instructions in her reply. It might help. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/silverlight/en-US/2ad43b0d-be46-414d-94b2-aa4a06f7655c/cannot-install-visual-studio-2015-update-3?forum=vssetup

    You can try running the installer as an administrator and clean the windows temp folder.


    Thanks, Mahmoud

  • I was able to install it using the regular Community 2015 with Update 3 installer, for whatever reason that seemed to work better.
