Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 Installed Failed to Update.

The installer will fail to update despite repetitive tries.

The solution to this is:

  • Navigate to

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio

  • Delete the Installer Folder.
  • Close all the instances of Visual Studio (all versions), if exist.
  • Start afresh by installing vs_community__941523033.1489047009.exe or equivalent. Available here.
  • This will install the installer again.
  • Relaunch the installer.
