I suggest you ...

Rather than a 36.5GB download (far too much for anything other than a corporate server with a T1 pipe)break this download into 12 parts

Rather than a 36.5GB download (far too much for anything other than a corporate server with a T1 pipe)break this download into 12 parts and when all are downloaded allow them to combine and load this will save much time 36.5GB is far too much or at least add a progress bar because the circular/flat dots is a sever pain as MS used to do in the days of Win98.

Hi there, would love to know where you’re being offered a single 36GB file. I’m not aware of any place where we distribute Visual Studio legitimately as a single file in this nature – MSDN offers a web installer, and even the ISO image is 3.7GB. We download other parts of Visual Studio in components. Please let us know where you’re seeing this, so we can help you further.

Thanks, Tim Sneath | Visual Studio Team
