Fail to Install Microsoft .NET core 1.0.0 in Visual Studio Enterprise 2015

The Problem

However, right after installing the former, the latter executable refuses to install showing up the following error popup:

Capture

 

The Fix

The issue seems to be generated by the fact that VS Studio 2015 Update 3 is not correctly seen by the setup executable, thus making the internal checks erroneously fail.

Luckily enough, there’s a simple workaround we can use to skip these checks by using a command-line parameter that does just that.

To get past the issue open a command prompt, navigate through the folder where you downloaded the Microsoft .NET Core 1.0.0 VS2015 Tooling Preview Update 2 executable file and type the following:

dotnetcore.1.0.0-vs2015tools.preview2 SKIP_VSU_CHECK=1

As soon as you hit ENTER, the setup program will start by skipping the erroneous Visual Studio Update checks, allowing you to install the package.

    Brilliant, I could see the error in the log but didn’t know the command to fix it. Thanks
