When visiting Microsoft website to download VS2015 you can download a file of a few MB in size to install Visual Studio. When you open the file it acquires the files necessary from internet, but you can not choose where these files are stored. How can I download the entire installation of Visual Studio 2015 to perform an offline installation? For example, for multiple machines.

Starting from visual studio 2017 Microsoft is no longer offering .ISO images. For the new visual studio 2017 you have to download vs_community.exe from here and create an offline instalation folder:


vs_community.exe --layout c:vs2017offline

Then, in order to install from that folder you have to first install certificates from certificates in the download folder and then run the installation.

Download the file of website and start it with the commandline switch '/layout' (see msdn to download visual studio 2015 installer for offline installation). So C:vs_community.exe /layout for example. It asks for a location and the download begins.

EDIT:With the ISO version you still need internet connection to be able to install ALL the features. As pointed out by Augusto Barreto.

For the Visual Studio Community 2015 with Update 2 you will have to click on Visual Studio 2015 on the left panel first, in order to display the Download options.

The SHA-1 values, in order to verify the integrity of the downloaded file, can be found here.

For the record, Microsoft Download Center has the ISO images for both Visual Studio Community 2015 and Visual Studio Community 2015 with Update 1.

It seems there are direct links and anyone could get it with a download manager.

That is direct link to ISO file


Even if you download the ISO files there will be lots of stuff not included in the installer which requires connection to internet when installing, for example:

  • Emulators for Windows Mobile
  • Windows 10 SDK
  • Tools for Windows 10 Universal Apps
  • GitHub Extension for Visual Studio and Git CLI
  • C#/.NET Xamarin
  • Visual C++ Mobile Development (iOS support)
  • Joyent Node.js
  • Java SE Development Kit
  • Android SDK, NDK, and emulator

Perhaps some of them are not possible to include but it is annoying nonetheless.

I bumped into this page 'Download #VisualStudio 2015 (ISO + Web Installer)' ( and the ISO link ( provided in this page seems to be valid.

I am downloading the ISO at this very moment.


Was able to download the ISO and burned into a DVD. Also tried installing (only C/C++) on a 64-bit Windows 10 laptop and everything seems to work except that the installer couldn't find and had to go to Internet to download packagesvcRedistD121033vcredist_x64.exe (although this file does exist in DVD and runnable).

You can download visual studio community edition with /layout switch.

But I prefer to use /layout with /NoRefresh for my low-speed internet connection that downloading long more than a day.

Every time that you run the installer it searches for new updates and if it finds updates, start downloading them and consume more time and more bandwidth!


I think the ISO version is smaller than the Layout method because the ISO version is just in English or whatever language it is that you choose, however the 'Layout' version is ALL of the languages available, So for example if the 'Layout' version downloads a 3gb file(English Version) it will download the same 3gb file in another language that you will not ever use wasting your downloads, time and all that other good stuff.

You can download the ISO from (even if it has 'beta' in the URL you'll have the latest stable version. Currently update 3)

For the latest VS2015 sp3, the command line shoud be:


The following worked for me on a Windows 8.1 machine to download and prepare the setup folder, and then on a Windows 10 laptop to install:

  1. Go to
  2. Select “Visual Studio Community 2015 with Update 3” x64, English, DVD, and Download.
  3. Open the folder containing the download, which is called: en_visual_studio_community_2015_with_update_3_x86_x64_dvd_8923300.iso and its size is 7,617,847,296 bytes.
  4. Right-click on the file name: Mount
  5. On the mount folder, shift-right-click on an empty space: Open command window here
  6. On the command window: vs_community.exe /layout 'blah blah blah blah Visual Studio 2015Setup' (or whatever path you want; the Setup folder gets created).
  7. Follow the dialog box instructions.

When I did this, it remained for exactly two hours and ten secs in the Acquiring: Optional items. Don’t despair.

When it completed, the size of the Setup folder was 12.9 GB. Compare with the size of the .iso above.

After completion, I succeeded on installing without a network connection, and that even though on completion I had got the following:
