How to activate SonarLint for Visual Studio C++ support offline

Our SonarQube setup is on a closed network. We have the developer edition so that we can scan C++.

When installing the SonarLint extension for Visual Studio, upon loading Visual Studio it asks to “Activate support for additional languages in SonarLint” which includes C++ files. This process attempts to connect to the internet then fails and I’m not sure of any way to activate this feature offline.
