Cannot download updates for Visual Studio 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    years ago I bought Visual Studio 2012. Now I nedded to reset my laptop and I reinstalled VS, inserting my product key. My problem is that I cannot download updates because, when I bought VS, there was no need to join product key with an account. When I surf to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3072098, I insert my microsoft login but I got the message "Sorry, we couldn't find any downloads for you.".

    How can I solve my problem?

    Thanks

  • Hi Fab,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    >> My problem is that I cannot download updates because, when I bought VS, there was no need to join product key with an account.

    ## According to your description, I think you might could not access this official website for downloading VS 2012, am I right? Ken and RLWA32 have shared you with the links and you could go there then download the update package you want.

    Hope all above could help you and if you still could not download the update package, please feel free to let us know and we are willing to help you.

    Have a nice day.

    Best Regards,

    Tianyu

  • Hi Fab Lsr,

    Sorry for bothering you.

    According to this error, we recommend you could go to this site to join Dev Essentials, then re-access the download page to see if it could be downloaded.

    Hope it could help you.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • Hi Fab,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Not sure if your Microsoft subscription has been expired, you could go to this website my.visualstudio.com/Subscriptions to check the Valid Through tag.

    In general, if you have a Visual Studio Dev Essentials(it’s free) like Dylan said above and you will be able to download the package.

    In addition, if possible, could you share us with some screenshots about your error prompt and this is helpful for us to check.

    We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best Regards,

    Tianyu.
