I have had some issues with successfully installing VS2017 Community and Xamarin on Windows 7. When I check the Mobile Development with Xamarin check box in the VS installer it downloads and installs most of the files but not everything because I cannot get blank project to build when testing. Each time I run the VS installer it shows components missing and its like it wont complete the install.
I have noticed in the past that VS2015 and VS2017 dont work well with Windows 7 as it seems things dont install fully. Can I use Xamarin with an older VS like 2013? My development machine is unfortunately stuck on Win7 due to IT policy etc.
I am primarily interested in Xamarin Forms and I am a newbie so apologies in advance if its a silly question.
