Build Tools for Visual Studio

Aurimas N 26 Reputation points

When trying to install some pip packages I get the error stating:
Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 is required. Get it with "Build Tools for Visual Studio":

However I can't find the download for build tools, I've googled around and was only able to find references on 3rd party websites, can anyone provide a link on Microsoft based website to download build tools for visual studio?

I know it must exist as I was able to find it somehow on my personal PC few days ago, but can't replicate that "luck".

    Microsoft Visual C++ 14 is the compiler that was distributed with VS2015. The build tools for VS2015 can be downloaded from older-downloads. Expand the Other Tools, Frameworks and Redistributables to see the download link for the Build Tools.
