What is the point of installing Visual Studio Code, if build tools take 6.5GB?

This must be some bug, or something. I don't think even Visual Studio Community does take 6.5GB! I installed VS Code and clang, but I need to install: "Microsoft C++ Build Tools" yet! It says it takes 6.5GB :O While I selected only C++ build tools. And I checked optional components and all are recommended actually, weird! Do I actually need to install all of these????????? ![81652-c-build-tools.png][1] [1]: /answers/storage/attachments/81652-c-build-tools.png

According to the issue, it is more related to Visual Studio Code. I suggest you could post the issue to GitHub-vscode for better help.

Actually, what you need from there is Windows 10 SDK, which is not small, indeed. You can live without other topics than Win10 SDK

Damn another 4.5GB. What is point of Code, if you need install huge file anyway... I dislike VS Studio Community, because it is spyware and installs crap I don't need to my computer... At this point I should think about open source IDE...

Believe me, VS IDE is very good. You only need to install every component carefully, that's all.
