I am having major problems with installing Visual Studio 2015 that I have been dealing with since its release on Monday. I uninstalled Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate and installed Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise and this happened:
The installation has not only partially failed, but Visual Studio is not even completely installed, and
devenv.exe is missing from the folder. Is there a way that I can wipe everything related to Visual Studio from my machine, including plugins, extensions, etc. and start fresh? I'm trying to run an installation repair at the moment, but I don't believe it is going to get me anything.
I'm extremely frustrated to the point of anger at the moment, so please try to be patient with me.
UPDATE: Visual Studio is now working, but I still have one problem with the Windows Phone SDK not installing. Any ideas for a fix?
Here is what the log file has to reveal on the failed Windows Phone 8.1 SDK installation.

As the Windows 10 update caused more problems with my computer, I ended up reimaging my machine and starting fresh. When the time came for me to install Visual Studio 2015, everything worked perfectly. I never found out what the problem actually was, and I am aware that this is not very helpful for those who do not want to reimage the machine.
