Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 Build Tools 16.8.0-16.8.2 (x86) | 12.49 GB
This is the installer of the build tools from Microsoft (i.e., this is all you need to build projects but without a development environment, without an IDE). If you need with a development environment, then install this
More specifically, unlike the full studio, this installer does not include the VS IDE Core component and, accordingly, you cannot install the visual development environment through BuildTools. Through this, an attempt is made to reduce the weight of the installer and reduce the size and impact on Windows. BuildTools does not provide any additional features (that is, it is like a "toolchain from small soft" ... it seems to me it would be worth calling this modification so that everything was clear at once ... but apparently the desire to be unique and inimitable prevents them from using calmly already available terms ).
• Disconnect from the Internet ... so that the installer does not download the lists of installed components for the most recent version ... the one that may not yet be available in the distribution. If this happens, then the installer may no longer have enough of what is in the distribution and download errors may appear
• If the installer does not have access to the Internet, then install certificates for self-diagnostics of the installer by executing Certificates_Setup.cmd
ON BEHALF OF THE ADMINISTRATOR • Then run Setup_BuildTools

Pay attention to the possibility to vote in the distribution header .
In the distribution from the BuildTools edition, old versions of C ++ compilers have been removed so that the distribution size is smaller and it would already be advisable to have a separate distribution for BuildTools. Whoever needs old compilers, you can install BuildTools from this distribution (well, either give the installer access to the Internet ... he will then download the necessary one during installation)
The removed components are so unimportant that you simply cannot select them from the first tab of the installer. On the second tab, in order not to run into missing components, you should not select those components that contain "14.2x" in their name, where x is from 0 to 7 ... the latest version (14.28) is naturally left. In short, graphically speaking from C ++ compilers, only this is left:
