How do I install Xamarin for VS2015?

LesFergLesFerg NZMember ✭✭

I am working with VS2015 Enterprise, and our development team is not in a position to upgrade to 2017.
The Xamarin installer is ignoring my VS2015 installation and wants to install 2017 Community Edition.
I don't believe that I should be installing Community Edition in the workplace.
Am I able to add Xamarin to VS2015?

(you wouldn't believe the painful process I had to go thru just to get upgraded to Windows10 so that I could use Xamarin, now I find I am blocked again. Gonna start programming in Python, the way this is all going)

    Why not install both? I assume if you have a valid VS license you should be able to use VS2017, so why not install them side by side to avoid the upgrade?

    Or is it a dumb corporate thing - you must use X but can't use part of it.

    "Why not install both?" I know, right?
    Worse than a corporate thing.... government... I'm already considered to be a cowboy for producing software in the same month they asked for it.
