Visual Studio 2015 update 2 install

I recently ran into some issues compiling an older version of the Unreal 4 game engine, and needed to downgrade my Visual Studio 2015 update 3 to update 2.

During a fresh install, the Visual Studio installer automatically goes out, and downloads the latest updates which was update 3.

After so scouring the web, I found a Microsoft site that shows how to install previous versions via command line, but here is the grid, just in case the site goes away.

Visual Studio 2015 edition What to run Command-line to use What setup does
Visual Studio Enterprise (the latest public release) Visual Studio Enterprise with Updates (available fromMy.VisualStudio.com) vs_enterprise.exe Note: The default behavior of this installation offers the most recent optional features and therefore, it does not require any command-line parameters.
