Creating a full off-line installation directory for Visual Studio 2017 Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/01

Steps:

  1. mkdir C:\Installs\VS2017Community\VS2017CommunityLayout
  2. pushd C:\Installs\VS2017Community
  3. bitsadmin.exe /transfer "VS2017CommunityBootstrap" https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/vs_community.exe C:\Installs\VS2017Community\vs_community.exe
  4. vs_community.exe --lang en-US --layout C:\Installs\VS2017Community\VS2017CommunityLayout
  5. VS2017CommunityLayout\vs_community.exe

Step 3 needs a full path to the destination file.

Step 4 can take a relative path.

Step 4 takes considerable time (for 15.2 about 90 minutes on a 100 Mibit/s fiber connection with an ~8 millisecond ping time to download.visualstudio.microsoft.com; for 15.8 with 80 Mibit/s and a ~4 millisecond ping about 120 minutes) resulting in ~40 gigabyte download.

After download, run the vs_setup.exe in theVS2017CommunityLayout directory.

Note that upgrading to a newer version of Visual Studio 2017 will require downloads! See [WayBack] Offline Install Modify always goes to the WEB – Developer Community.

Note that after installation, Visual Studio 2017 needs considerable disk space as found via visual studio 2017 disk size – Google Search:

[WayBack] Visual Studio 2017 System Requirements | Microsoft Docs:

Find the minimum system requirements, supported hardware, and languages for the Visual Studio 2017 product family.

Hardware
  • 1.8 GHz or faster processor. Dual-core or better recommended
  • 2 GB of RAM; 4 GB of RAM recommended (2.5 GB minimum if running on a virtual machine)
  • Hard disk space: up to 130 GB of available space, depending on features installed; typical installations require 20-50 GB of free space.
  • Hard disk speed: to improve performance, install Windows and Visual Studio on a solid state drive (SSD).
  • Video card that supports a minimum display resolution of 720p (1280 by 720); Visual Studio will work best at a resolution of WXGA (1366 by 768) or higher.

For instance, the choices below require about 22 gigabyte of space, while adding mobile .NET development adds another 13 gigabyte.
