Setup has detected Visual Studio Update 3 may not be completely installed.

Recently, I installed a new laptop with Visual Studio and the “normal” tool chain. While doing this, I encountered a strange error when installing the .NET Core tools.

NET Core Error

Setup has detected that Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 may not be completely installed. Please repair Visual Studio 2015 Update 3, then install this product again.

However, repairing Visual Studio did not solve the problem. Luckily, I found this StackOverflow post. The problem could easily be solved by starting the setup on the command line with this command:

DotNetCore.1.0.0-VS2015Tools.Preview2.exe SKIP_VSU_CHECK=1
