Visual Studio 2015 FAQ
How can we help?
I received the error “No Internet connection detected on this machine.”
While attempting to install Visual Studio the following error appears “No Internet connection detected on this machine. Please connect to the Internet and click Retry. Clicking Continue without an Internet connection may prevent install of some optional features.”
Make sure that your machine has a connection to the internet when installing Visual Studio. Also please make sure that you follow the Visual Studio Installation Tips and that your machine meets the minimum System Requirements. If your machine meets the System Requirements and you follow the Installation Tips and still encounter this error, verify that you have at least Internet Explorer 11 installed on your machine. Having the latest Internet Explorer version can assist in bypassing this error.
