Sometimes your Visual Studio installation becomes damaged or corrupted. A repair is useful for fixing install-time issues across all install operations, including updates.

When to use repair

  • If you're having installation payload issues. This may happen when writing the file to disk is not successful, and can't be fixed by deleting the corrupted file. Repair can re-acquire needed files.
  • If you're having client-side download issues. Assuming you've resolved any connection or proxy issues, repair may help.
  • If you're having issues updating Visual Studio. Repair fixes many common update issues.

Tip

If the install issue is caused by an issue in an underlying Windows service, like Windows Installer, repair may hit the same issue. Systemic issues can include a broken Windows Installer or unstable internet connection. To check for a systemic issue, use the error report generated from the installation operation.

Note

Repairing Visual Studio resets user settings, and re-installs the assemblies you already have. If you're experiencing a product issue, create a Visual Studio Feedback Ticket, as repair might not solve the issue.
