Visual Studio 2015 stuck at Windows Update KB2999226

I had installed Visual Studio 2005 community version on a Windows laptop before and it went all good but this time when I installed it on macbook pro (Windows 7), it got stuck the Windows Update KB2999226. I waited for hours but it wont go pass it other. In a previous attempt it gave me a failed messsage on KB2999226 as well. I did some online digging and found this post which solved me problem. It basically says

  1. Download KB2999226 from here
  2. Install it manually, it might take 10 minute or so
  3. Once it is installed start your Visual Studio 2015 installation

While my installation has gone pass the above error but now I am getting stuck at hotfix for Windows (KB2664826). I hope my installation goes fine.

  1. I don't want to leave my name says:

    I’m not sure if you’ll ever respond but when I ran it it never got past “Searching for updates on this computer…” Even checking for updates on my computer doesn’t find anything. Do you know what I can do to fix this?

      I think searching for updates on *this computer* might not help. You have to do the online update (unless you have downloaded all updates locally).

      In my opinion if your system got stuck, it will always stuck. It is your OS/configuration related problem. In my case I had this issue on Windows 7 (Macbook Pro) and it is known that Mac does not run Windows optimally. So you can call it, it is your PC problem. I would suggest to check with your PC manufacturer site.
