In the organization that I work at, we have a number of developers who use Visual Studio 2013. I also personally use Visual Studio 2013, both at work and at home.
What gets me is just how long it takes to install Visual Studio 2010/2013. Currently my install has been going for 2 hours and 45 minutes, though this is via the web installer. A typical install onto a developer's machine in my organization generally takes 1.5-2 hours to complete, and this is regardless if the disc image is on a shared drive or on their computer.
Additionally, uninstalling is a nightmare. With the release of the Community Edition, I have decided to upgrade from Visual Studio 2010 (For which I own a license for) to Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition. The uninstall itself took over 3 hours.
So what is taking Visual Studio so long to install/uninstall? Is there anything I can do to speed up this process when we deploy it to our developer's machines?
