### Attention Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 Users

You must have Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 update: April 2014 installed in order to install Visual Studio 2015
You can download KB2919355 here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2919355

### Customizations
You can customize the installation either by specifying your own installation configuration file.

#### Adding optional features
Optional features (Sql tools, phone tools, etc.) are available but not installed by default.
To specify the features you want installed you can download the AdminDeployment.xml and modify it to support your needs.

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/KennethB/Chocolatey-Packages/master/VisualStudio2015Professional/Tools/AdminDeployment.xml

Specifying the optional features above modifies the configuration file used during installation (AdminDeployment.xml). If that is not enough you can provide this file on your own.
Example:

choco install VisualStudio2015Professional -packageParameters "--AdminFile c:\path to your\AdminDeployment.xml"
choco install VisualStudio2015Professional -packageParameters "--AdminFile http://path/to/your/AdminDeployment.xml"

To install Visual Studio 2015 Professional Update 3, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install visualstudio2015professional

To upgrade Visual Studio 2015 Professional Update 3, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade visualstudio2015professional

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
