Cannot install VS 2015 Community - error "VS 2015 Professional is installed" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had VS 2015 Professional install on Windows 10 via a company licence. On my home PC it proved impossible to get it working properly. Some of the errors -- trying to create a Universal Windows app, the XAML visual editor would crash. Finally sorted that out two weeks ago. Now, building a WinForms app goes fine. Until you run it. It runs fine. Once you've stopped debugging, trying to do ANYTHING to the apps results in the sort of behavior I'd expect if all the project files were marked readonly -- you can't change anything.

    So I want to try VS Community and see if that works for me -- I desperately need to be able to work at home and work, and my employer will not let me get a correctly-setup laptop.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.  I don't care what names you call me.  I don't care if you point out that goldfish could solve this problem.  I would just like to solve it.

    Oh, and my MSDN cell no is wrong so I can't get my password changed.
