How to upgrade Visual Studio 2015 to add additional workload when Visual Studio 2017 has been installed too

Robinson, Duncan A. (Refinitiv) 21 Reputation points

I need both Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2017.
I installed VS 2015 first, then VS 2017
Now I need to upgrade the VS 2015 version to add features:

Visual C++ ATL for x86 and x64 Visual C++ MFC for x86 and x64

When I launch Visual Studio Installer, it only allows upgrade of the VS2017 install

Is there anyway for me to work around this without having to reinstall VS2015 ?

Thanks in advance
