I’ve been trying to make a build environment using the Windows Server Core image as a base. I’ve been able to successfully install Microsoft Build Tools 2015 on top of it, but I saw that for the Visual Studio 2017 rollout, they created an updated version. I wanted to use this updated version, but I can’t seem to get it to install. When I try to install, it just kind of sits there and does nothing. I let it sit for over an hour and nothing happens.
I’m downloading the installer from here: https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/#build-tools-for-visual-studio-2017
I tried running both:
vs_buildtools.exe –quiet –add Microsoft.VisualStudio.Workload.VCTools –includeOptional
Does anyone have experience installing this in server core? Any help would be appreciated!
