VS 2017 Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are getting ready to upgrade to VS 2017. Based on the website below, the question came up as to which install we should use from "Step 2 - Create a local install cache":

    .NET web and .NET desktop development
    OR
    .NET desktop and Office development
    OR
    C++ desktop development
    OR
    a complete local layout with all features (this will take a long time - we have lots of features!)

    We use VS for desktop applications, web applications both in VB and C#. I am assuming we would need a full install but wanted to make sure.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    >>We use VS for desktop applications, web applications both in VB and C#. I am assuming we would need a full install but wanted to make sure.

    According to your description, you need the following workloads:

    Microsoft.VisualStudio.Workload.ManagedDesktop (which for .NET desktop development)

    Microsoft.VisualStudio.Workload.NetWeb (which for ASP.NET and web development)

    Microsoft.VisualStudio.Workload.NetCoreTools(which for .NET Core cross-platform development, If you need)

    You can check Visual Studio 2017 workload and component IDs to download what you need. You could still download the offline cache to same offline folder next time.

    Best regards,

    Joyce
