Visual Studio Community 2013 Update 4 RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I will begin by saying that I am not a user or do I have vast knowledge in VS 2013. I work as an IT professional for a company that houses the software. One of the developers here is having a problem since updating to Update 4. It won't let me post pictures on here till my account is verified but when opened we get a (modify/Repair/Uninstall) screen.  we can select repair but it just trys to run for about an hour, then makes no changes that help. User is using an Optiplex 3010 with Windows 8.1 Pro.

    When we run the modify we get the set up steps once again with options to install. I leave all checked and click update. The result is the same as the repair.

    The fixes I have tried for the issue is one user suggested I download the update and install it manually which I did and we got the same results.Tried the repairs from the answer here:

    user has tried the following:

    I tried the Un-install and reinstalled several times.
    I have also done the Repair several times.
    I can not get the Modify to do anything but display the screen with the Update button disabled.

    Any ideas?

  • But that computer is not the only one or the first where it is installed. 

    Therefore there has to be something special which gives this behaviour. 

    From this side we cannot see that. 

    Did you already after uninstall remove all orphan folders. 

    There are in Documents, in Program Files (86) and in Program Files

  • Hi,

    This has no known solutions. One of the things I do in this kind of cases is put the computer down and "unplug" it to be sure nothing keeps running. 

    Did you do that already?

  • If you are performing reinstallations is that from an ISO or via the net?

    I would download the ISO image and install from that rather than attempting an online install.

  • I did both, neither gave a desirable result. Thanks for the input.
