• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

Installer did not install cl.exe, but thinks it did

I'm on VS 2015 (14.0.25420.1). I've run through the installer multiple times, selecting everything under Visual C++. The problem is that cl.exe was never installed, but the installer thinks it's already installed and so I'm not able to install cl.exe. Can you please let me know what reg key (or whatever) the installer is using to determine if cl.exe is already installed so I can clear it out and force the installer to install cl.exe?

Things I've already tried:

1. Installed and uninstalled VS 2015 multiple times, selecting everything under Programming Languages -> Visual C++

2. Checked under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\. There is no bin folder.

My only option left is to pave my machine, and I would like to not do that if possible.
