problem installing the VS 2015 update 3/ HoloLens Emulator

Hello all. I have a problem installing the VS 2015 / HoloLens Emulator. While downloading VS 2015 update 3 (since it is a pre-requisite for HoloLens emulator) an error pops up.

Error says:
This product requires Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 with Update 1 and UWP tools versions 1.2

Can someone help me to download Visual studio 2015 update 3. I will highly appreciate a stepwise solution. (I use windows 10 and do not have older version of VS 2015)


  • I face the same issue. Were you able to fix it?

  • having the same issue, no solution found yet. They make it seem like it is so easy to get started but the set up is the most confusing part!
