    Hi @Fahim Ahmad ,

    From looking at your logs, It seems that you uninstalled the VS2022 before. Your issue may be caused by an unclean uninstallation.

    Please try the following steps and check if it works for you:

    1. Manually delete any leftover install and cache folder you previously installed to
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio
      %programdata%\Microsoft\visualstudio\packages
      C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
      C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio
    2. Delete the setup registry key, which was set when you first installed(Maybe there is only one key, please check one by one.):
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Setup
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Setup
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Setup
    3. If you have anti-virus software and group policy, please temporarily disable them
    4. Download the new bootstrapper file from https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/ and run it as administrator.

    Sincerely,
    Anna

    Hi Anna,

    I have already tried these tasks listed below

    • Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool
    • sfc /scannow
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and restore health
    • Cleared temp folder.

    but the thing which actually worked for me is, I uninstalled all the frameworks installed in my PC and installed framework through windows update.

    My issue is resolved now.
