## Already fixed in master?

I believe this behavior is already fixed in the latest wrench builds of xamarinvs-master. In fact the whole installation procedure runs delightfully quickly in the version from master. Very nice!

I'll just file this bug for completeness, and to double-check that this is no longer an issue in xamarinvs-master.

Feel free to close this right away!

## Steps to reproduce

1. Boot a fresh Windows system that has at least two versions of Visual Studio installed.

2. Open the Task Manager, and sort the processes by name.

2. Run the Xamarin.Android installer.

3. On the "Custom Setup" screen, pick "Entire feature will be unavailable" for all but one of the installed VS versions. That is, leave only one "Xamarin for VS 201*" entry set to "Will be installed to local hard drive".

4. Proceed to install Xamarin.Android.

## Result

Near the end of the installation procedure, each of the installed versions of `devenv.exe` can be observed to run for a while in the Task Manager.

## Expected result

Only the `devenv.exe` corresponding to the "Xamarin for VS" version that was marked "Will be installed to local hard drive" needs to run.

It is indeed fixed in master and will be part of the 1.12 release :)
