visual-studio - x64 - universal crt kb2999226




Stuck while installing Visual Studio 2015(Update for Microsoft Windows(KB2999226)) (8)

Another workaround is to turn off Internet connection, reboot and restart VS installation. Without Internet connectivity VS installer won't try to update Windows first and will continue without delay.

I am trying to install Visual Studio 2015 to my Windows 7. I seem to get stuck in this screen while installing it. It has been like 3 hours now and still stuck. Tried installing that update manually but had no luck since it just kept loading as well (Searching for updates).

Any ideas?


I faced this problem after installing clean Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS,

When I search about KB2999226 install fails during Visual Studio I also saw that I couldn't install any other updates.

By the way, I found a solution. When formatting some PCs with ( maybe ) partly corrupted bootable media, first Update for windows not completely installed.

As a solution;

1- Disable update for windows from Control Panel.

2- Restart your pc.

3- Install KB3102810 windows update. ( First update for Windows )

Microsoft TR links;

( 64 bit ) https://www.microsoft.com/tr-TR/download/details.aspx?id=49540

( 32 bit ) https://www.microsoft.com/tr-TR/download/details.aspx?id=49542

4- Restart your pc via finished setup.

5- Try getting updates, or manually setup KB2999226.

I could install this way.

Have a nice days.


I managed to solve the problem by the following steps :
1. Disable windows updates(but check the option "let users install updates manually")
2. Reboot the PC
3. Manually install kb2999226 update from VS install folder (packages/Patch/x64/Windows6.1-KB299926-x64.msu)
4. Start the VS install
5. After install is finished turn back automatic updates


I was stuck with the same problem. I found this page with all the possible versions of the KB2999226 also know as Update for Universal C Runtime in Windows.

I download the x64 version and it work perfectly in my Windows 7 Ultimate.


Just kill wusa.exe and install KB2999226 manually. Installation will continue without any problems.


Probably it´s because your Windows is outdated. You should go to Windows Update->Look for Updates and then download and install them. I am sure, it will work.

The same thing happened to me. Here is what I did in order to get it successfully installed. I downloaded KB2999226 update from Microsofts website here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49093

After installing this package, I started the installation process again. That worked for me.
