Spinner that is spining for an hour means nothing if there is no percentage when downloading is involved...

That's because the BuildTools_Full.exe is really slow to install. Go take a coffee... it will take a long time...

Yeah, I should probably indicate somewhere that it'll take a really long time.

[Resolved] Once you failed for some reason, go to Task manager and kill the BuildTools... process and try installing again.

Same issue, no BuildTools process during job execution on Windows Server 2016 in Jenkins BATCH command. On the server, this takes < 1-2 minutes. Hangs on Python installation Successfully. Something is amiss.

it's copied from the build_tool _log.txt. killing BuildTools in taskmgr as suggested by bluemind didn't make it.
