"There is both ISO and Web installer of Visual Studio Community 2015. As far as I know the Universal App Development tools are not part of the ISO installer and they are downloaded during the installation."
I am using the ISO to do my install (I have tried web and various versions of ISO all fail at same point)
<lightning-formatted-text data-aura-rendered-by="2:38333;a">I am trying to install Visual Studio 2015 on a Windows 2016 Server to meet IBM requirements for building and deploying apps to Windows Tablet devices for the new Anywhere 7.6.4.https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/1101243But I cannot get theUniversal Windows App Development Tools, and select the following options:Tools (1.4.1) with Windows 10 SDK (10.0.14393)This is a know issue with Microsoft that is supposed to be fixed byhttps://github.com/microsoft/TypeScript/issues/4238They say:This is a known bug that we have fixed, however you could have been affected if you installed the "tools for universal apps development" during a specific period of time. There is a post on our MSDN forums with some steps, and we will soon be publishing a KB with the following workaround:Cant find any KB.....The solution(doing the devenv /updateconfiguration and devenv /clearcache)they provide is not working for me and I am assuming it has to do with being 6 years old... I dont think MS wants to provide the correct files to a product this oldWHY IS IBM STUCK IN VS 2015 WHEN WE ARE 2021!!!!!!Anyway, I have moved to VS2017 as it will support the SDK version 10.0.14393.0BUT VS 2017 WILL NOT SUPPORTWindows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.0/8.1 ToolsWHY DOES IBM NEED Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.0/8.1 Tools When the Anywhere 7.6.4 will ONLY work on Windows 10 Tablets anyway?????? Why do I need ability to build apps on unsupported platform????????Please help!!!! I been fighting with this for 5 days now!!!!!!!</lightning-formatted-text>
I am not sure why Visual Studio is not installing, I do have it working in one environment. In my other environment I uninstalled VS 2015 so I could reinstall VS 2015 with update 3 and now I am having issues, I have seen other reports of that going back a few years on Microsoft boards, I get an error that a file is missing or corrupt. This is an issue with Microsoft not Anywhere. We do have clients using Anywhere 764 with Windows and as I stated my original install in my second environment works fine and has the correct SDK and Tools. I initially installed VS 2015 with no updates and that is where I had an issue installing the update from Microsoft. I can not answer why the update is not working. Unfortunately that is the version of Visual Studio that is required.***************************************************************************************So where does this leave us as customers????????? I dont care how they fix it but IBM must fix this with MS or get us a new installer to install what they want to build anywhere Apps....This was my reply:
This is the entire point. Brand new installs will no longer work as MS has removed support for the product that IBM wants. I am now testing on another machine just to see it happen on a 3rd machine now. Yes, old installs may have worked. This does not help me doing a new install.
I dont care how this gets solved but I need a new install to work so that I can build apps. IBM must fix what they need to build or get ability to install what is needed. Or solve how to get around not having what will not install...
This is an IBM problem not MS... IBM should open a service request with MS to solve this so I can build my Anywhere Apps.
We were able to successfully identify the issue as well as a fix that is expected to unblock you. The affected files that were taken off the download center have been resigned and republished. We appreciate your patience on this while we addressed the underlying security issues and unblocked users. It is expected that the ISO installation will now acquire and install these packages successfully without needing further changes (other than redoing the install). If you do continue to see issues, I ask you ensure that you are using the latest available ISO available: https://my.visualstudio.com/Downloads?q=visual%20studio%202017%2015.9&wt.mc_id=o~msft~vscom~older-downloads
