Visual Studio 2017 - Fixing Broken/Corrupt Installation
Nov 15, 2017

I experienced a crash while installing Visual Studio 2017. This caused a whole bunch of issues where I couldn’t complete the installation of the UWP packages and I also couldn’t create new C++ projects inside VS. The solution is to completely remove it and reinstall. This does more than uninstalling via the control panel.

Run as Administrator.
