Technical Details and System Requirements

For optimal installation, disconnect from the Internet to prevent the installer from downloading the latest component list, which might not be available in the distribution. If the installer can't access the Internet, install certificates for self-diagnosis by running Certificates_Setup.cmd as an administrator. Then run Setup_BuildTools.cmd, specifying the desired version number (e.g., 16.0.X).
