    I installed Visual Studio 2017 on a Windows 8 machine. It ended being an incomplete install
    in which it created more problems than care to deal with again.

    I ended up using several system restores to get my machine back in shape form this ordeal.

    For the VS 2017 install I used MS site to download and I did a Web install. That incomplete
    install did not work and only created way to many problems.

    How can a get a nice clean install of VS 2017 community without taking a chance of going
    threw all these problems with incomplete installs of VS 2017.

    Note I all ready have VS 2012 on this machine and I hope to keep using it after I install
    VS 2017 on it.

    Thank you,
