    ## In fact, if you want to uninstall the Visual Studio 2017 Community, you could open your Visual Studio Installer and click on the “Uninstall”. For Visual Studio 2017 Community and Professional edition, they can be installed side by side in your computer.

    According to your description, it seems that it is not uninstalled cleanly. You could use the InstallCleanup.exe to uninstall it. Then, retry the installation.

    In addition, in order to investigate this further, please provide us with your installation logs. You could download and run this collect.exe tool, go to %temp% folder and find the vslogs.zip file, upload it to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link here.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    Anna
