Unity Hub doesn't include Visual Studio component

    When I first installed Unity Hub, I decided to install Unity 2018.1 and include Visual Studio with it, since MonoDevelop support ended. I went to bed as it installed and when I checked in the morning, it sailed that Visual Studio, Mac support, and Linux support failed to install. I then installed the supports instead since downloading 1G isn't ideal. The next day, I attempted to install the Visual Studio component, but it never appeared in the list of components to install. I reinstalled Unity 2018.1, but it didn't work.

    Any help on this bug? I really need Visual Studio.

    Oh wait, I can simply use the old installers.

    Somehow, Unity Hub actually installed Visual Studio Community the first time around, but it thought the installation had failed, when it hadn't. I only learned it after reinstalling Unity the 3rd time. why.png

    Normally, the hub is not offering the Visual Studio, if it is already installed.
    Do you have any visualStudio under /Application?

    it actually offered VS after every new version of Unity even though it was installed.
    I've solved the problem by just reinstalling everything

    I just installed Unity 2018.2.3f1 and selected the module for Visual Studio Community 2017 and as it was installing because it was taking awhile, I went to bed and in the morning when I checked, I had an error saying Visual Studio Community 2017 failed installation. I tried to install that component again but I get the same error message. I do already have Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0 that I had installed months ago. Could that be causing the problem? Do I need to uninstall it?

    Hello @Penny10,
    Sorry to hear you have problems to install Visual Studio using the Hub.
    You shouldn't need to uninstall Visual Studio 2013, since Visual Studio 2017 is a separate app.
    Could you verify that Visual Studio was really not installed?
    In the current version of the Hub, it sometimes say that it failed while it, in fact, succeeded.
