    Hi @Harika Anasuya ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Could you please try to download the DVD(ISO) version of Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 from here: Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 Download? As, on April 26, 2021, VS 2015 and older web installer files were removed from the Microsoft Download Center, and only ISO images are available.

    Best Regards,
