    When attempting to install the latest 2018 Beta, I selected the option to install Visual Studio. Once the installation process had begun, I realized that I already had the latest cut of VS on my computer and didn't need to install it, so when the window eventually popped up to install Visual Studio, I cancelled the installation, at which point the Hub...just stopped updating.

    When I closed and reopened the Hub, it said the beta version was installed, and I was able to build new projects with that version, but I didn't feel confident that the installation process had actually completed. I feel like the installation should be able to exit more gracefully if interrupted.

    Hello,

    This is a known issue we've been having with VS installation cancelling. We are actually working on a fix and it shouldn't affect Unity's installation process in the future. Thanks for reporting this and don't hesitate if anything else comes up.

    Cheers,
