  • Copy it to your local hard drive folder let’s say E:\Install
  • Create a folder to download installation files say E:\Install\VS2017 (can be in a different path such as D:\VS2017)
  • Open command prompt as administrator and change the directory to where your downloaded .exe is available
  • Execute the command below

downlaoded.vs.install.exe --layout pathtodownload

Example: vs_enterprise__984310617.1489458965.exe --layout E:\Install\VS2017
