    See the Requirements : Visual Studio 2022 Product Family System Requirements
    where there is :

    .NET Framework 4.5.2 or above is required to install Visual Studio.
    Visual Studio requires .NET Framework 4.8 to run. If .NET Framework 4.8 isn't already installed, it will be installed during setup.

    Thank you so much for the information.

    For his security reason my Server Admin does not want to upgrade to the new net framwork in my window server 2016, they want to remain in the existing net framwork 4.0; Then I would like to seek your expertise if there is an existing older version of visual Studio Professional out there that I could download for Net Framwork 4.0?

    If there is older version for Net framwork 4.0, could you please give me the link?

    Many Thanks,
