Offline installer redist downloader still downloading all language packs


#1

@brian: Even though the window for downloading redist now has a menu to select the desired language(s) ALL the language packs are downloaded in spite of having only English checked. The menu has existed going back several WIPS that I’ve noticed, so I’m wondering whether this is the way it is going to work for good, or whether the intent is to have it work the way the existence of the menu implies?

It takes quite a while to download the whole thing, and that’s on a 60MB/sec connection.

The offline installer needs everything, even the stuff you don’t care about, in order to work. There currently aren’t any plans to make a light offline installer.
