Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 ISO locations

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/14

Direct Microsoft download URLs for the various Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 ISO files.

I won’t even try myself finding them through the Microsoft sites any more given the trouble I had: How can I get Win10_1511_1_English_x64.iso or Win10_1511_1_EnglishInternational_x64.iso ? « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff

Use cURL to test local virtual hosts configuration – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/14

Quoting John Hart‘s brilliant answer:

Using --resolve leverages all of the normal logic that applies, but simply pretends the DNS lookup returned the data in your command-line option. It works just like /etc/hosts should.

Note --resolve takes a port number, so for HTTPS you would use

Https: curl --resolve ''

Http: curl --resolve ''

It requires curl 7.21.3 or higher (from the end of 2010). Which by now everybody should have.
