      Hi Andrew,

      I don’t have a video for that. I might be able to create one this week. The new installer is very different – it lets you only install specific features. The only features you should need for these lessons are the ones in “.NET desktop development”. If you want to use SQL Server, it would be useful to install “Data storage and processing”. Here’s a picture of my install screen. I have several other features installed, but you should only need the two in the red rectangles.
