Building your own C application. A lot of efforts have been made so that these tutorials are as simple to compile & run as possible. Unfortunately, this also means that CMakes hides how to do that on your own project. So, this tutorial will explain how to build your own C application from scatch.

If you haven’t downloaded and installed Visual Studio and the Visual C++ tools yet, here’s how to get started.

Visual Studio 2019 Installation

Note

This topic applies to installation of Visual Studio on Windows. Visual Studio Code is a lightweight, cross-platform development environment that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. The Microsoft C/C++ for Visual Studio Code extension supports IntelliSense, debugging, code formatting, auto-completion. Visual Studio for Mac doesn’t support Microsoft C++, but does support .NET languages and cross-platform development. For installation instructions, see Install Visual Studio for Mac.

Want to know more about what else is new in this version? See the Visual Studio release notes.

Ready to install? We’ll walk you through it, step-by-step.

Step 1 — Make sure your computer is ready for Visual Studio

  1. Check the system requirements. These requirements help you know whether your computer supports Visual Studio 2019.
  2. Apply the latest Windows updates. These updates ensure that your computer has both the latest security updates and the required system components for Visual Studio.
  3. Reboot. The reboot ensures that any pending installs or updates don’t hinder the Visual Studio install.
  4. Free up space. Remove unneeded files and applications from your %SystemDrive% by, for example, running the Disk Cleanup app.

For questions about running previous versions of Visual Studio side by side with Visual Studio 2019, see the Visual Studio 2019 Platform Targeting and Compatibility page.

Step 2 — Download Visual Studio

Step 3 — Install the Visual Studio installer

  1. From your Downloads folder, double-click the bootstrapper that matches or is similar to one of the following files:
  • vs_community.exe for Visual Studio Community
  • vs_professional.exe for Visual Studio Professional
  • vs_enterprise.exe for Visual Studio Enterprise
  1. If you receive a User Account Control notice, choose Yes.
  2. We’ll ask you to acknowledge the Microsoft License Terms and the Microsoft Privacy Statement. Choose Continue.

Step 4 — Choose workloads

  1. Find the workload you want in the Installing Visual Studio screen.
  2. For core C++ support, choose the ‘Desktop development with C++’ workload. It comes with the default core editor, which includes basic code editing support for over 20 languages, the ability to open and edit code from any folder without requiring a project, and integrated source code control.
  3. Additional workloads support other kinds of C++ development. For example, choose the ‘Universal Windows Platform development’ workload to create apps that use the Windows Runtime for the Microsoft Store. Choose ‘Game development with C++’ to create games that use DirectX, Unreal, and Cocos2d. Choose ‘Linux development with C++’ to target Linux platforms, including IoT development.
  4. The Installation details pane lists the included and optional components installed by each workload. You can select or deselect optional components in this list. For example, to support development by using the Visual Studio 2017 or 2015 compiler toolsets, choose the MSVC v141 or MSVC v140 optional components. You can add support for MFC, the experimental Modules language extension, IncrediBuild, and more.
  5. After you choose the workload(s) and optional components you want, choose Install.
  6. Next, status screens appear that show the progress of your Visual Studio installation.

At any time after installation, you can install workloads or components that you didn’t install initially. If you have Visual Studio open, go to Tools > Get Tools and Features… which opens the Visual Studio Installer. Or, open Visual Studio Installer from the Start menu. From there, you can choose the workloads or components that you wish to install. Then, choose Modify.

Step 5 — Choose individual components (Optional)

Step 6 — Install language packs (Optional)

Change the installer language from the command line

Step 7 — Change the installation location (Optional)

Important

You can select a different drive only when you first install Visual Studio. If you’ve already installed it and want to change drives, you must uninstall Visual Studio and then reinstall it.

Step 8 — Start developing

  1. After Visual Studio installation is complete, choose the Launch button to get started developing with Visual Studio.
  2. On the start window, choose Create a new project.
  3. In the search box, enter the type of app you want to create to see a list of available templates. The list of templates depends on the workload(s) that you chose during installation. To see different templates, choose different workloads.
  4. You can also filter your search for a specific programming language by using the Language drop-down list. You can filter by using the Platform list and the Project type list, too.
  5. Visual Studio opens your new project, and you’re ready to code!

Visual Studio 2017 Installation

Prerequisites

  • A broadband internet connection. The Visual Studio installer can download several gigabytes of data.
  • A computer that runs Microsoft Windows 7 or later versions. We recommend Windows 10 for the best development experience. Make sure that the latest updates are applied to your system before you install Visual Studio.
  • Enough free disk space. Visual Studio requires at least 7 GB of disk space, and can take 50 GB or more if many common options are installed. We recommend you install it on your C: drive.

For details on the disk space and operating system requirements, see Visual Studio Product Family System Requirements. The installer reports how much disk space is required for the options you select.

Download and install

  1. Download the latest Visual Studio 2017 installer for Windows.
  2. Tip
  3. The Community edition is for individual developers, classroom learning, academic research, and open source development. For other uses, install Visual Studio 2017 Professional or Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise.
  4. Find the installer file you downloaded and run it. It may be displayed in your browser, or you may find it in your Downloads folder. The installer needs Administrator privileges to run. You may see a User Account Control dialog asking you to give permission to let the installer make changes to your system; choose Yes. If you’re having trouble, find the downloaded file in File Explorer, right-click on the installer icon, and choose Run as Administrator from the context menu.
  5. The installer presents you with a list of workloads, which are groups of related options for specific development areas. Support for C++ is now part of optional workloads that aren’t installed by default.
  6. For C++, select the Desktop development with C++ workload and then choose Install.
  7. When the installation completes, choose the Launch button to start Visual Studio.
  8. The first time you run Visual Studio, you’re asked to sign in with a Microsoft Account. If you don’t have one, you can create one for free. You must also choose a theme. Don’t worry, you can change it later if you want to.
  9. It may take Visual Studio several minutes to get ready for use the first time you run it. Here’s what it looks like in a quick time-lapse:
  10. Visual Studio starts much faster when you run it again.
  11. When Visual Studio opens, check to see if the flag icon in the title bar is highlighted:
  12. If it’s highlighted, select it to open the Notifications window. If there are any updates available for Visual Studio, we recommend you install them now. Once the installation is complete, restart Visual Studio.
