How to offline install Visual Studio Express without download the whole image file

Filed under: .Net — Tags: — vicker313 @ 1:46 am

Visual Studio Express (VSE) is the free version of Visual Studio, released together with Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. User can get VSE from MSDN website without any genuine checking. There are two ways in getting VSE.

The first method is web install, which the user needs download a bootstrap of a selected VSE product, run it and the bootstrap will automatically download setup files from internet and install the product into the computer. The next time user wants to install the software in another computer, the bootstrap will download the whole things again from the internet in order to perform the installation.

The other method is of course offline install, which user needs to download the whole image file from the internet, and either burn it or virtual it in order to perform the installation. However the image file consists of everything (Visual Studio Web Developer, C#, Visual Basic, SQL Server, framework and other stuffs), and making it more than 700MB (which a normal CD cannot hold).

In my scenario, I want to download Visual Studio Web Developer Express only, and will install the software in another computer without any internet connection. I don’t want to download the whole image file that I might just be using 10% of the files. There isn’t any official way to download a single product of VSE, so we need to play around with the bootstrap in order to download a workable offline installation file.

First, download your selected product bootstrap. And then we need to extract the bootstrap into a directory using some compression tool like WinRAR.

Second, we search for a file called baseline.dat inside the directory and open it with notepad or other editor. Then we search for a section called [vs_setup.dll] (it is square bracket). Under that section, you can find a URL parameter with the value of fwlink…

Third, open a browser and type in go.microsoft.com/ followed by the URL value that found in baseline.dat at the address bar (as a result your address will look like go.microsoft.com/fwlink…). It will automatically download the installation file of that product. It is usually about 50MB.

Forth, after we download the installation file, we extract the file into another directory. There will be a file called vs_setup.msi. Then we need to run a command prompt, go to that directory, and use the command below to execute the installation file.

msiexec /i vs_setup.msi vsextui=1 addlocal=all reboot=reallysuppress

If we run the file vs_setup.msi directly, there will be an error to request you to run the setup.exe file. So at the command, vsextui=1 make the installation think it is executed through a setup.exe file.

However when I try out the trick for VSE 2005 product, there is a little difference in the forth step. Instead of extract the installation file into another directory, I extract it to the same directory as I extract the bootstrap. Then I can install the product by using the setup.exe from the bootstrap.

And that’s about it in how to offline install VSE without download the image file. I have used this trick to install VSE Web Developer 2005, Web Developer 2008 and C# 2008.

    Comment by Mohamed Safi Samsudeen — December 21, 2008 @ 8:24 am

    • i’m wondering whether you want to download the whole visual studio or part of it like vb only. since you said you can download separately, so i guest you’re able to do the later. to download the whole visual studio, just download the whole dvd iso well do…

  3. thanks a lot!!!
    it worked for me , i got visual c++ 2008 express installed
    thank you!!

    Comment by conqrr — February 17, 2009 @ 8:38 am

  4. hey but there is a catch, for some reasont the visual compiler says rc.exe missing, apparently , the installation was unsuccesful.. is it possible to some how link th 50 mb file to the bootstrap so it will use the 50mb file locally and complete the installation????

    Comment by conqrr — February 20, 2009 @ 10:19 am

  5. @conqrr- the ms website says you don’t get a res compiler with the express edition.

    isn’t rc.exe the res compiler?

    @vicker313- this is really nice. 50MB instead of 96MB instead of 300+ or whatever a full VS runs at nowadays. all i want is the command line tools. i don’t need an IDE

    web installers and msi installer SUCK!

    you rock vicker313

    Comment by qmake — March 3, 2009 @ 2:17 am

  7. winrar extract created 4 vs_setup.ms_ files which do not execute when I run msiexec.
    Any ideas where I went wrong?
    thanks,
    John

    Comment by john d — June 7, 2009 @ 12:06 am

    • hi, john. i double check the installation files i download (long time ago), and found that only visual studio express 2005 has vs_setup.ms_ files. is it the version you download?

      if yes, look whether got setup.exe file. try execute file directly.

      Comment by vicker313 — June 7, 2009 @ 5:55 pm

  8. Hi, and thanks for looking into this. I downloaded visual studio 2008 express. I was in trainning all week using the professional version and was told that I could do what I need with vs 2008. Because I can only burn cds and not dvd I am stuggling with the iso more than the work I need to do. Anyway, I don’t have a setup.exe or I would have been done along time ago. Winrar appears to have extracted the files without any conversions.

    I am thinking that I can burn the 766 meg iso file onto an 800 meg cd with infraRecorder. What do you think, worth giving it a go? Sure cheaper than buying a dvd burner just to install free software. Did Microsoft plan it this way?
    thanks,
    John D

    Comment by john d — June 7, 2009 @ 10:46 pm

    • haha, i have noticed what is wrong. have you downloaded the offline visual studio express 2008 iso? actually you don’t need to download the dvd iso, just the web installer will do. then please refer to my post in what to do next.

      Comment by vicker313 — June 8, 2009 @ 7:57 am

  9. This works on 2k3 server. I needed to extract the downloaded file into the folder, then only use this command: msiexec /i vs_setup.msi vsextui=1 addlocal=all

    • Just found the solution, you have to have the .net 3.5 framework installed first to avoid this error

  14. Greetings,

    Nice article. It helps a lot to understand the behind the scenes process of installing VS. Any way, I cannot seem to find the http://go.microsoft.com/ site anymore. When I type http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=119376 on my browser, it takes me to search.microsoft.com.

    Does anyone have the exact URL for retrieving the msi file.

    Comment by Efrain — September 21, 2009 @ 12:25 am

    • I take that back. I the url was not correct. I am downloading the file as I type.

      Thanks again. Nice article.

      Comment by Efrain — September 21, 2009 @ 12:31 am

  15. This is a very great article!! It saved me time and only took about 10 minutes to complete rather than the whole setup itself.

    I’m going to do a repack of the setup with this information. :D

  19. I can’t use above trick to install Microsoft VC# Express 2010 beta 2 :(
    The setup file is exe and msiexec can’t detect it.
    Help me :(

    Comment by Imjooseo — January 24, 2010 @ 7:21 pm

    • it seems different since you can’t find baseline.dat inside the setup file. try this: run the setup file and leave it. then go to your temp folder (check it at my computer settings, like mine it is at c:\users\user\appdata\local\temp). check around the new created folder and you can find baseline.dat file. i haven’t try it yet, but you can continue from step 2 and let me know the result.

  20. I have the same problem as naman.I was trying to install vc++ 2008 express. It asks for CppCodeProvider.dll, displays error 2350 and exits setup. Please help!

    Comment by AdAn — February 17, 2010 @ 3:58 am

  21. Worked like a charm! Thanks a lot. I used this trick to cirumvent an angry proxy that would let the online install crash right after starting.

    Comment by Randy — February 17, 2010 @ 9:42 am

  22. Another method would be (at least on a windows xp machine, vista and 7 shouldn’t be much different):
    -Use the windows utility to clean out temporary files for the current user.
    -Run the web installer with the settings you want, let it download the files, but hit cancel once it starts installing them.
    -(this part may vary on non-xp machines) go to the folder ‘documents and settings\your username here\local settings\temp’.
    -There will be a few empty folders with odd names, then a few folders with data in them which contain the installers complete with executables for each individual part you selected in the web installer.
    -Not only that, it also has the web installer primed with the downloaded data, can be ran on any machine (with or without internet access) to ensure the install was done in proper order as long as you be sure to get all the folders that contain the individual pieces as well. You can run that installer without internet as long as you don’t add any options you didn’t originally check off during the download process.

    I used the method I described to burn a cd with visual c# on it a couple months after the express editions were released and it’s worked great ever since, even stuck an autorun.ini that points at the web installer.

    Comment by Chalz — August 4, 2010 @ 11:56 pm

  33. Hello,
    Thanks for the tutorial. There is one problem with the installation command. When you enter “msiexec /i vs_setup.msi vsextui=1 addlocal=all reboot=reallysuppressr” the installation will start running normally but will give an error because it can’t confirm that you are actually the administrator commanding the installation.
    Solution:
    on your command line replace letter ‘i’ with ‘a’ and the final commandline should be something like the following:
    “msiexec /a vs_setup.msi vsextui=1 addlocal=all reboot=reallysuppressr”
    The letter “a” says that the administrator is running the command.
    Thanks and looking forward to another helpful tutorial.

    Just run into a few error codes (2908 & 1935) on launching the MSI via command prompt on my Win2000 machine (doesnt have internet connectivity).
    Will be trying to install -Visual Basic 2005 Express- later today (downloading as I type). along with a .NET framework update (4.0) and a Visual Basic 6.0 fix. I’m not expecting that to work lol, but I’m armed with another piece of information relating to the registry, see here if anyones interested _ http://www.add-in-express.com/creating-addins-blog/2007/11/12/windows-installer-error-2908/ _

      Comment by Mystic-Mirage — September 5, 2011 @ 4:57 am

  50. Hi Vicker,

    Would be so kind as to update the post for 2010?

    Here is my experience with Visual C# Express 2010:

    1. WinRAR couldn’t open the bootstrap exe (vcs_web.exe), but if I launch that .EXE, it unpacks itself into a directory in %TEMP%. Just type “%TEMP% in Start -> Run, and go to the newest directory there. You’ll find baseline.dat in that directory.

    2. After downloading the ~50MB setp, WinRAR again couldn’t extract it, but 7-Zip could. This way you’ll get vs_setup.msi.

    3. As a previous commenter mentioned, I ran msiexec with the ‘a’ parameter:
    msiexec /a vs_setup.msi vsextui=1 addlocal=all reboot=reallysuppress
    This silently created “c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0″ and no items in the Start Menu.

    However, when I run VCSExpress.exe, I get the following error:

    —————————
    The program can’t start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
    —————————

    However, that DLL does exist, in c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\Packages\Debugger\X64\msvcr100.dll
    Perhaps it needs to be registered somehow?

  62. This worked for the VS 2010 C# Express as well.

    Make sure you have the full Version of .NET 4 Framework installed, not only the Client Profile. Otherwise an error is shown: “The designer could not be shown for this file because none of the classes within it can be designed.”

    Comment by v. — August 8, 2012 @ 5:02 pm

  63. To all who got an error while doing the 4th step follow the following,(i’ve just figured this out myself after 1 hr of study)

    1.Extract the downloaded file.

    2.Make sure after extraction you have got the following files:
    vs_setup.exe
    vs_setup.msi
    _sfx_manifest_

    3.Copy and paste the above files in “C:\Users\YOUR NAME”

    2.Open the cmd prompt

    3.Type this “msiexec /i vs_setup.msi vsextui=1 addlocal=all reboot=reallysuppress”
