I have Visual Studio 2015 Premium on Windows 10. I installed Xamarin and the Xamarin Visual Studio extension through the Visual Studio installer. I downloaded the web installer to install Xamarin Studio on Windows but it is never successful. It detects that it needs to install the latest version of Xamarin which I already updated through Visual Studio and also needs to install Xamarin Studio. When it tries to install it green checks the Xamarin Studio icon but fails on installing Xamarin. It looks like Xamarin Studio was successfully installed but not found in my start menu.

@kzu, this is an issue with the MSI it seems (see the log attached to the original post for more details, should they be needed):

[Info] MSI (s) (28:DC) [12:00:40:310]: Product: Xamarin -- Error 1316. The specified account already exists.
[Info] Error 1316. The specified account already exists.

This issue should be already fixed.
Please feel free to reopen it if you're still facing it with latest bits.
Thanks
