Visual Studio Installer Doesn't open

When I open the installer, it asks me to give permission for it to run. When I press yes, it does nothing.

The installers located in the download folder and when I check Task Manager it doesn't appear there.





Is there anything I can do to fix this as other executable files run.

(I also use Windows Defender as my antivirus.)

Hi @Hextav-8531 ,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

Have you tried to run the Visual Studio Installer as administrator? Does it work?

You can try to manually delete the "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer” folder.
Then, re-download the bootstrapper file from the following Microsoft Site and run it as administrator.
https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/

Before the installation, please temporarily disable the anti-virus software.

Sincerely,
Anna
