  • Today, I found it on https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/#tools-vs-2015, listed as Visual Studio 2015 Integrated and Isolated Shell.

    The download links to https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=616021.

    I was logged in with my life ID and also needed to supply additional personal data.

  • I just tested and things have been reorganized.

    I am now being redirected to https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio and a message reads

    If you have been invited to join a private NDA program for Visual Studio, you can view specific content by selecting from the dropdown titled "Programs" located at the top of this page.

    If I open that link, I get a page with

    Visual Studio 2015 Shell Redistributable Package

    To begin the download, please select the appropriate link:

    And a lot of language packs.

    It looks like access to these resources is linked to my MSDN subscription.
