EasyHostingASP.NET | Best and cheap Visual Studio 2017 hosting. In this post we will explains how to create Visual Studio 2017. You can create an offline installation layout that contains all the files you need to install Visual Studio 2017 RC without requiring Internet access.

To create an offline installation layout of  Visual Studio

  1. Download the Visual Studio setup executable file to a drive on your local machine. For example, download the vs_enterprise.exe file.
  2. Run vs_enterprise.exe with the following arguments (switches) from a command prompt:a. Add --layout <path>, where <path> is the location where you want the layout to download to. Note that relative paths (e.g. ..\vs2017) are not supported at present. By default, all languages are downloaded. (See Example A.)

    b. Restrict the download to a subset of the available languages by providing the --lang <language> argument, where <language> is one or more of the ISO country codes. (See Example B and Example C.)


Example A: Install all languages

Example B: Install one language

Example C: Install multiple languages

Country codes


ISO CodeLanguage
pt-BRPortuguese – Brazil
zh-CNChinese – Simplified
zh-TWChinese – Traditional

Install from a layout

To install Visual Studio from an offline installation layout

  1. On the target machine, navigate to the Certificates folder, which is in the Layout folder.
  2. Right-click and install each certificate in the Certificates folder.(If you are prompted for a password after you install a certificate, click Continue.)
  3. Run vs_enterprise.exe from the Layout folder.


The offline installation layout currently creates some files with restricted permissions (ACLs) that prevent access by all users. Make sure that you adjust the permissions (ACLs) so that they grant Read access to other users before you share the offline install.

Update an installation layout

As updates become available for Visual Studio 2017 RC, you can run the --layout command again, pointing to the same layout folder, to ensure that the folder contains the latest components. Only those components that have been updated since the last time --layout was run will be downloaded.


While Visual Studio 2017 RC in general is supported for use in a production environment, those workloads and components that are marked “Preview” in the installation UI are not supported for use in a production environment.
