Does the installer look like this?

no it looks like this

it does this

so then i try to download the packages
then back to this screen

it doesnt even attempt to download the package

am i doing something wrong?

VS2015 build tools probably don’t work anymore, try using 2019 build tools.

It worked for me btw.

Probably your system is wrong for some reason.

i’ll try the 2019 tools


alright c++ 2019 has a problem too, it infinitely loops the file download

Isn’t the Microsoft/Windows Live IPs blocked in host file?


Well that’s interesting. :thinking:
Is your DNS and proxy setup correct? Or you should try with a VPN. Is IE upgraded to newest version? If this not work then I have no idea what’s the problem. :confused:

shit that may be why, i have ie 8

Well try with IE11/12 (idk which is the newest on Win7)

11, its the newest version of ie on windows 7 - 10
