Quick Reminder – Don’t install ALL of Visual Studio

Quick Reminder: When installing Visual Studio, be sure to select Custom install and then remove C++. You won’t be needing it for SharePoint development.

And on your VMs, you can remove SQL Server Express. It won’t install if you have already have SQL server. But if you don’t uncheck it, you’ll get an error at the end of setup, and we don’t want to see errors at the end.


Removing the two unneeded items shows we’ll really only need 4.5 GB of disk space.
