Description Anthony Petillo 2016-08-16 14:01:27 UTC
XamarinInstaller.exe failed telling me to download and install Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.1.2.18.msi. 

I followed those instructions, but when I execute the Xamarin.VisualStudio_4.1.2.18.msi, it complains:
"This setup requires Microsoft Build Tools 2015 package to be installed for this installation to continue."

I've tried to download the Microsoft Build tools 2015, but I could not locate it. All links bring me to a Microsoft page stating: "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found."

One more thing, I do have Visual Studio 2008 installed. Could this be causing an issue? How do I resolve it?

Thanks for your help!!
