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.

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


By default, the package installs only the bare minimum required (the MSBuild Tools workload). The easiest way to add more workloads is to use the workload packages:

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"


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. dotnet4.6.1 or later) first, perform a reboot if necessary, and then install this package.

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).
