    Hello there,

    Glad to hear it is sorted also as a note, The first thing to check is whether or not the issue you're encountering is a known issue with the Visual Studio Installer that Microsoft is working on fixing.

    To see if there's a workaround for your problem, check Known Issues of Visual Studio 2019 and Known Issues of Visual Studio 2022.

    This troubleshooting guide includes step-by-step instructions to resolve common issues with Visual Studio installation and upgrade.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
