While other toolsets include Visual studio extension development and Linux development with C++ could be the options for developers. New improvements of Visual Studio 2017 includes new installation experience that will reduce the time of installation of Visual Studio 2017 and will let you install tools inside the broad category of development technology and will make you able to install specific tools from a whole toolset of single or multiple technologies. In previous Visual Studio the installation will be experienced slow as there you have to install the whole setup of Visual Studio or you have to install a single technology that had multiple toolsets thus making installation a bit slower. In the case of installing the whole setup, there were setups and technologies that weren’t so broad but installing whole setup and bunch of technologies is now an aged approach. Previously if you install a full installation of a setup of Visual Studio or any other large size creative software, uninstallation of that program mostly resulted in the error and incomplete uninstallation e.g Visual Studio 2012 installation and uninstallation initially resulted in buggy installation on certain versions of Windows later fixed by patches and updates by Microsoft. But here in Visual Studio you could easily install and uninstall the whole setup of toolsets or a particular number of toolsets, they will be removed easily and without errors.
