      I wanted to update the status to make sure you know that we hear you. This isn’t straightforward to deliver for obvious reasons: Visual Studio installs a disparate variety of tools, runtimes and SDKs, many of which come from third parties or other parts of Microsoft. We recognize that developers would love to see something lighter and while we have nothing new to announce at this stage, we are spending a lot of time thinking about how we can improve Visual Studio installation.

      Thanks for the feedback!

      @Peter Ritchie - is this what you were looking for? http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-2015/suggestions/4750782-make-the-installation-of-visual-studio-light-weigh

      We have a new team working on this installer space, and we have spent some time working to merge tightly related ideas together - not to 'get rid of them' but to make it easier to vote for an idea and get it to bubble up above the fold. In the meantime, please also feel free to add some further commentary to this page - we're following this space closely.

      Best wishes, Tim Sneath | Visual Studio Team

        Hi Frison, this is a good piece of feedback. I'm logging it on the backlog for the documentation team to look at. In the meantime, this StackOverflow article has a good description:

          Thanks for raising and voting for this suggestion.

          At this point, we’d like to dive further into the specific needs your scenarios will have from the API. If you can spend a few minutes to answer the questions on this survey, we’d greatly appreciate it! Your answers will help us plan and prioritize the work required.

          Thanks to all who have suggested this. Today the CodeLens API is not marked as public, but we recognize that there are good extensibility scenarios for this. We're taking a look at the work needed and will update this idea based on our investigations.

            Thanks for the feedback, Philippe. I'm going to move this over to the VSO category so that the right folk are seeing it and can take action.

              Hi there, I've moved this from the Extension category to the Languages - C# category to make sure the right people are seeing this idea and are able to take action on it.

              Thanks, Tim Sneath | Microsoft
