Create an offline installer for Visual Studio 2017

Ok so now that we have Visual Studio 2017 on the way, we all went in and downloaded the install.

The first problem I noticed is that I didn’t find any way to download the ISO or off-line installer.

There is however a way to make create a Off-Line installer folder.

To do so follow these steps:

  • First download the web setup file. Don’t run it, just save it to your downloads folder
  • Create a folder somewhere on your drive. Example: c:\Software\VS2017 and also c:\Software\VS2017\Offline

  • Copy the Web Installer EXE you downloaded and copy it to c:\software\VS2017
  • Open an Command Prompt and change the current folder to the ne where you placed the EXE file n the previous step (i.e. c:\software\VS2017)
  • Run on the command Line (replace NameOfExeFile.EXE with the name of the EXE file you download on first step):
    • NameOfExeFile.EXE --layout c:\software\vs2017\offline
  • Be ready to wait for all files to download

 

Thats it. Hope this helps
