  • Hi IamGuy84,

    As far as I know, the update 3 RTM version resolved some feedbacks of the update 3 RC version, certain packages require uninstall the old version, and then re-install the new version like the .Net core package or others.

    So for this issue, if possible, I suggest you uninstall the VS2015 update 3 RC firstly, and then restart your machine, re-install the update 3 RTM again. I feel that certain old packages impact the new version's setup.

    Best Regards,
