    If you don't like Microsoft, don't use Microsoft.

    If your PC is not the issue, what @arcadesdude said.

    Symlink are an easy solution.

    @Artemix that is not the reason. If you want to install VS on a different drive, it will still utilise the C drive or whatever the windows installation drive is. This is because .NET needs to be tied in with components of Windows to function correctly. Microsoft doesn't gain anything out of keeping users on a free product, in fact they have created uninstallers for VS so that people can remove them properly. Quite frankly it's not anyone's fault that people have 120 GB C drives because everything they do is on a secondary drive.
