    Ever since you've included the Visual Studio tools in the main install, I always get the error "Error: Account already exists" when it gets to the point of trying to install them. So far I've just pressed "Ignore" and it continues and things seem to work fine, but I'm guessing if you ever update the VSTU tools that those of us with this error won't get the update. Is there any way to fix this error?

    I also experience this issue. I've ended up just deselecting the Visual Studio tools option each time I update Unity but am worried I might not be getting certain VSTU updates.
