Visual Studio 2017 Build Tools Preview

15.9.7.10000-preview1

Package test results have failed.

This package is unlisted and hidden from package listings.

Overview

These Build Tools allow you to build native and managed MSBuild-based applications without requiring the Visual Studio IDE. There are options to install the Visual C++ compilers and libraries, MFC, ATL, and C++/CLI support.

Visual Studio Preview gives you early access to the latest features and improvements not yet available in the main release. By trying Preview, you can take advantage of new builds and updates that ship on a frequent cadence. For more information on Visual Studio Preview installs, visit the FAQ page. Visual Studio and Visual Studio Preview can be installed side-by-side on the same device.

This release is not "go-live" and not intended for use on production computers or for creating production code.

Please note that the preview version is continuously evolving and certain features may not work as expected. This version is also not licensed to build shipping applications.

To find out what's new or to see the known issues, see the Visual Studio 2017 Release Notes.
System requirements

Customizations and Optional features

By default, the package installs only the bare minimum required (the MSBuild Tools workload). The easiest way to add more development features is to use the workload packages listed in the Release Notes section.

All package parameters are passed to the Visual Studio installer, enabling full customization of the installation. The possible parameters are described here. The package passes --norestart --wait by default, and --quiet, unless --passive is specified in the package parameters.

After installing the package, more features can also be added by launching the Visual Studio Installer application from the Start Menu.

The language of the installed software can be controlled using the package parameter --locale language.
The list of languages is presented here. By default, the operating system display language is used.

Full installation

This command will install Visual Studio Build Tools with all available workloads and optional components, display progress during the installation and specify the English language regardless of operating system settings:

choco install visualstudio2017buildtools --package-parameters "--allWorkloads --includeRecommended --includeOptional --passive --locale en-US"

Notes

A reboot may be required after (or even before) installing/uninstalling this package.
If control over reboots is required, it is advisable to install the dependencies (esp. dotnet4.6.2 or later) first, perform a reboot if necessary, and then install this package.

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.
