operation returned because timeout period expired on Fri, 18 Nov 2016 22:35:24
I was trying to modify my visual studio 2015 so that I can have common c++ tools available for my visual studio (not online but in local storage). But every time I did that and the progress bar will go until finished, it just turns out a warning with optional items :"the operation returned because the timeout period expired".
Has anyone come across this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Welcome to MSDN forum.
Please have a look at the following:
1. Please confirm the current use is a local administrator and run the VS installer as administrator
2. Have a try with Windows Update Troubleshooter to see if it works or not.
3. Run the command: sfc /scannow in the elevated command prompt to verify the required system files.
Before installation, please disable any anti-virus software and clear up the %temp% folder
If there have any installation issues, I need your help to the VS installation log. Please use http://aka.ms/vscollect to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.zip under %temp% folder. Please upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link here.
