  • Hi pappasa,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum。

    Before installing VS, please check your Windows update already up to date, installing Win 7 SP1.

    Then try the following steps:

    1. Install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 (Offline Installer) for Windows 7 SP1

    2. Download ISO file of visual studio 2015 here.

    3. To verify the integrity of the ISO file, please use the FCIV.exe tool to check the SHA1 value of the ISO, the expected value comes from here, any discrepancy means the ISO is corrupted.

    4. After making sure the ISO is ok, please mount it to repair and re-install your VS again.

    If the above doesn't help, you'd better use  http://aka.ms/vscollect  to gather the installation logs. find vslogs.zip from %temp% folder. Please upload the file to Onedrive and share the link here. I will help you find the root cause according to the log file.

    Best Regards,
