Where is the forum for Visual Studio ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    With 5GB of stuff selected and painfully installed the previous night, the Visual Studio 2017 installer made a blunder today.

    Today since I wanted to work on mobile app development, I opened the installer and selected the mobile-development-with- Xamarin option.

    My internet went slow so i wanted to cancel it and that is where everything went wrong.

    First of all, there was no cancel button so I had to press the pause button.

    Next I searched for all the options and found a dropdown option for "remove".

    I assumed the remove button only removes the current module but no, it uninstalled the whole visual studio itself.

    My question is, why is the installer so confusing?

    Thanks.Visual studio (un)installer

    Computer is a box with magic called software.
