Have windows 11 pro. I want to download the above edition of visual studio 2015 for my son. I downloaded after giving my credential. the iso was extracted by 7zip and then when i clicked the exe, i get set up blocked error with , another note, that the installation requires a member of the visual studio 2015 be present during install or some thing blocked by computer.I have tried the fix as suggested to download the kb , 3165756 and tried to install. The same error cropped up. I tried to run as admin. the same error.
Could you give the correct fix to install this , as this could be helping in his learning and programming visual basics

Did you download just the update? That would require that Studio 2015 is already installed, as it would need something to update.

If you don’t have Studio installed already, you would want a download that is named something like “Visual Studio 2015 with Update 3.”

Also, why 2015? Is there a reason not to use a current version?

Hi, I was told by somebody that that version is ideal for beginners . So, I thought of downloading .It does show the update version only for the 2015 edition of community visual studio. So, I downloaded the ISO and extracted using 7 zip and then clicking the exe to get this error. This error seems to be unfamiliar as it ask some member to be present during installation . Please say that 2022 version is having basic things to learn and I will just download the latest version. how to start about , learning visual basic using the latest version, if any also may be given

I can't be entirely sure what you downloaded, without a link or a screenshot. If you can post a link or screenshot, I'll try to confirm what you downloaded. But ...

I wouldn't think 2015 would offer you any advantages over 2022. If I were starting out, I would download Visual Studio Community 2022.

I don't have any advice for getting started with Visual Basic. Aside from assisting another forum member here lately, I haven't written any VB code in 20 years. I should probably mention that Visual Basic, while not dead, is not getting any new features or supporting any new workloads.

Will it not help in supporting my son's knowledge of excel , by writing macros etc. I think older versions of excel, has visual basics macros . Your article does point out the dark side of support of vb by microsoft. I also hear that there is a microsoft, power bi, which simplifies integrating mso office components etc.
I want him to learn a computer language for coding and also that helps him with the excel or other data.
I have not heard of power bi, in my days.

Excel macros are typically written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), which is not related to the Visual Basic that is in Visual Studio.

Off the top of my head, the options would be

VS 2022 would probably be the best for beginners as it has up to date and very thorough coding assistance with things like Intellisense. You can look up functions and method parameters on the fly, formatting is handled by the editor, and if you want to, you can even have AI augmented code. Heck, you can even have the AI write the code for you.

IMHO, VS 2022 Community is the way to go.

And your son would be better off learning a more useful language like Python, C++ or C#. Or even just plain old C, though I don't think that VS 2022 actually supports it. Visual basic is an easy language to start out with, but it's a dead end support-wise. Something object oriented like C++ or C# would be much better as he could translate those techniques right into college and a job afterward. If you want to give him a leg up, get him to learn a language which uses modern techniques and methods.

Thanks psey and catnip. Psey for clarifying the difference between visual basic application and visual basic itself.
Thanks catnip for his tips on C#or C+ +, modern languages to stay.
