Visual Studio 2019 can't install Microsoft.VisualStudio.MinShell.Msi.Resources RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time I try to install Visual Studio 2019, I get the error "Microsoft.VisualStudio.MinShell.Msi.Resources could not be installed". I have tried everything I have found on the Internet. When I go to the Download folder of the Visual Studio Installer and I execute the .msi file directly of the package I get the error that it is forbidden due to a software group policy. It is my laptop and I am the admin, so there is no reason why it should be forbidden. I have Windows 10 Home and I am trying to install Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise(the Community edition also does not work).

    Here are my log files: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QI6HsOnxrlBQjO0D1MBxwR7HO8pjLDwA/view?usp=sharing

    You could post to  the VS forum for help. The C# forum is dedicated  to C# issues.

    Sounds like a permissions issue. This would be especially true if the files are blocked as unsafe by Windows. Check the permissions on the file(s), ensure the files are not blocked by Windows Explorer.

    The correct location to report issues with VS is via Visual Studio's developer community site. They don't provide VS support on the MSDN Forums anymore, generally.
